Multimedia artist Taiji Terasaki is dedicated to art and activism as a symbiotic relationship, using one to fuel the other and vice versa. With his latest mural “Recipes to Nourish Communities,” Terasaki deftly fuses breathtaking artwork with actionable information about food security in Los Angeles. This love letter to LA’s food activists encourages an honest look at the current state of nourishment in the city, and the work that is being done to improve it. Terasaki invites the community to join in the discussion, first by viewing the mural and then by joining some of the minds behind the featured organizations for a moderated talk

Terasaki’s moderated discussion at the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy at the JANM, is a free option for greater LA community members to hear about the featured organizations and the creation of the piece, as well as the mural’s trajectory. On March 5th at 2pm famed art critic Shana Nys Dambrot will lead a discussion with mural participants Ron Finley, Artists David Allen Burns and Austin Young of Fallen Fruit, and representatives from the Los Angeles Mission and Alma Backyard Farms including Erika Cuellar, Richard D. Garcia, and Dr. Roxanne Jordan. 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.

The mural itself, which highlights the importance of nourishing the local Los Angeles community, is executed on aluminum panels and mounted to the exterior of the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles’ (MCLA) space at 260 S. Main St. The large collage of images elevates the profile of four organizations/artists committed to providing access to fresh and nutritious ingredients in their corners of LA.

Additionally, Terasaki invites attendees to visit the mural at 1pm ahead of the discussion and walk over for the 2pm panel. With the introduction of AR and technology within the piece, made possible by Future Arts, Terasaki is proud to bring this groundbreaking metal mural to new audiences.
