> Parking Public: A Walking Tour of Utopianism and Parking in Hollywood
>
> Parking Public is an investigation into the realities of utopian
> thought as materialized in the seemingly mundane and pragmatic spaces
> of parking lots. Parking lots, one of the most visible, yet
> overlooked, artifacts of American mobility reveal the concrete space
> required to store the utopian ideals of automobility. Parking Public
> is a mapping of these literally concrete spaces in an attempt to
> locate the interests they serve.
>
> This tour of parking and utopias in and around historic Hollywood will
> be guided by Ryan Griffis of the Temporary Travel Office and Southern
> California artist/scholar Claude Willey. Parking lots will serve as
> the backdrop for discussions about the past, present and future of
> mobility, urban planning and spatial politics.
>
> All are welcome to join us on this free 1.5 hour tour that begins at
> LACE at 12 noon.

> diverse publics, and how (and where) the production and reproduction
> just spaces and societies begins.
