On Wednesday, May 29, 2013, DTLA Rendezvous joined residents of the Arts District for the weekly R.A.D.D. (Residents of the Arts District & Downtown) bike ride and walk. The Arts District Neighborhood Watch Walk was led by resident Scot Ezzell and the R.A.D.D. bike club was led by Melissa Richardson Banks of Downtown Muse.
The walkers met at Pie Hole at 6:30pm and our first stop was the Traction Triangle at Bloom Square where Sci-Arc's Earthwave Installation was put up just days before.
We then walked around the neighborhood a bit and saw amazing art all over the walls. This one (above) was my favorite! Unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to tell you where this is.
We met up with the bikers at their meeting spot at 7pm at Eat. Drink. Americano.
When both groups were done with the biking & walking, we all went back to eat, drink, and mingle!
Bikers led by Melissa Richardson Banks and ready to go!
After some walking, we somehow met up with the bikers again at Handsome Coffee, where, on Wednesdays from 5-8pm, The Produce Project has their weekly Pop-Up Farmstand bringing in hand selected & locally sourced produce!
Baskets of olallieberries, raspberries, and mulberries that Melissa purchased and shared with us. Thank you Melissa!
Last stop was a special presentation at TRACTIONARTS, a video venue/window on Traction Avenue that features artistic videos that rotate every 2 weeks. We saw the Childhood Bedroom by Beatriz Cortez.
