Watts Our Town Project
The Watts Labor Community Action Committee (WLCAC) is engaged in creating a new design to improve the area near the 103rd Street train station called Watts Station, pictured below.
Watts Station (103rd Street and Graham, Los Angeles, circa 1920)
Watts Station (103rd Street and Graham, Los Angeles, circa 1980)
The design will include an artistic pathway between 103rd Street and the Watts Towers Art Center Campus, as well as a Visitors Center to celebrate the cultural history of the Watts Community.
Multiple meetings with various stakeholders have been held, and surveys collected to capture community input. We are now in the process of refining final designs and results for release, expected in summer of 2014.
This project is supported in part by an award from
the National Endowment for the Arts.
