J. Michael Walker: Saints and Scribes of the City of Angels

WHEN WE reconvene in April, our guest that night will be the artist J. Michael Walker. He will be in class to speak about his various L.A.-rooted projects, among them "All the Saints of Los Angeles" and "City in Mind" his literary map of Los Angeles.  Please do a little research on him and be prepared to ask questions about his project. I will be calling on everyone to participate in the evening's discussion. He will be traveling from Highland Park to speak about his work as an artist and poet/essayist.  His website is here.

I think you'll enjoy his take on the city.

The photo above is from a studio visit I made a little earlier in the semester to see the map. He's pointing to Chavez Ravine now the home of Dodger Stadium, but we'll talk l more about that complicated history tonight in class.
