From 2006 to 2013, artist Lauren Bon and her team transformed Los Angeles’ Spring Street underpass into a vibrantly creative space that served as a public square, ceremonial ground, art gallery, community garden and musical instrument. The award-winning book Under Spring explores the space’s unlikely history. Join author Jeremy Rosenberg for a discussion about how this model can be applied to urban spaces across the Bay Area. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
