A dozen bus benches near the City Hall building in Pacoima are now part of an urban gallery of photos depicting everyday scenes of life in the San Fernando Valley community.
The “Te Amo Pacoima” public art project features benches displaying photography by local artist Meet Frankie C. It is part of a series of events organized under Councilman Felipe Fuentes and the city Cultural Affairs Department’s Museo al Aire Libre initiative.
Other Museo al aire Libre arts events include a Dia de los Muertos festival at Pacoima City Hall on Oct. 31 and Nov. 1. A coffee house and juice pressing shop is under construction at the Pacoima City Hall that will serve as a space for the community to gather, swap produce and provide youth job training.
“This initiative will create alternative space, provide art education outlets, incubate new local artists and showcase local art and festivals,” Fuentes said.
