MCLA PRESENTS TAIJI TERASAKI’S RECIPES TO NOURISH COMMUNITIES

Terasaki Invites Community to Join in Mission of Art Activism and Social Impact With Mural Opening Reception Highlighting Local LA Organizations

 

FEBRUARY 25, 2023

Opening Reception

2pm-4pm PST

 

MURAL CONSERVANCY OF LOS ANGELES (MCLA)

260 S. Main Street

Los Angeles, CA, 90012

 

Ever using his artistic platform to discuss topics surrounding the longevity of the planet and quality of life for its inhabitants, multimedia artist Taiji Terasaki unveils his latest project, a thoughtful and deeply important mural, “Recipes to Nourish Communities,” at the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles’ (MCLA) space at 260 S. Main St.

Welcoming the community to celebrate and engage in discourse surrounding food systems and the environment, Terasaki and MCLA are hosting an unveiling and opening reception on February 25th from 2pm to 4pm.

Featuring local activists and artists Alma Backyard Farms, Ron Finley, Fallen Fruit, and the LA Mission the mural explores different modalities of providing nourishing help. From Fallen Fruit’s planting of fruit trees for anyone to enjoy, to Ron Finley’s gardening commitment and march in DC for National Food Day, each organization promotes food equity and security, their mission amplified through Terasaki’s public work.

Residents and Downtown Los Angeles visitors can download recipes and view interviews via augmented reality, made possible by Future Arts.

With the mural and its AR component, this 2023 debut ignites an important conversation complete with actionable ways to contribute to a more sustainable and sustenance-filled Los Angeles.
