Grand Rounds

May 6-June 30, 2014, Grand Park, Los Angeles, CA

Events every Tuesday in May from 12pm-1pm.
Temporary Installation in Grand Park during the month of June.

Grand Rounds is a participatory public artwork incorporating acoustic sculptures and public conversations with individuals who work and recreate in the Grand Park area. The project investigates the many different voices, ears, and roles both public officials and citizens utilize to invigorate our communities in Los Angeles. Grand Rounds creates an inventive space for socially engaged art and civic dialogue in Grand Park in order to promote cross-disciplinary dialogue, collaboration, and civic engagement.

The project will take place over two months in May and June of 2014. Four Grand Rounds dialogues will occur on each Tuesday of May from 12pm-1pm in Grand Park.  These informal conversations, organized and facilitated by Elana Mann and Camilo Cruz, will involve ten invited participants who work for the city, county, and court systems. The general public will be encouraged to join in as listeners and contributors to the dialogues. In June a series of listening sculptures will be installed around Grand Park playing original sound works inspired by the previous month’s conversations.

Thank you for coming is a project partner, and is providing meals during the dialogues in may,

Grand Rounds  is curated by Elizabeth Cline and commissioned by Machine Project and the Music Center.
