Less Ghetto, Please

The York Blvd blog reports on the fine efforts of arts group Arts Corps Los Angelesis, which is trying to draw attention to its two-acre art park Tierra de la Culebra in Highland Park via free coffee and pastries for locals. Writes York Blvd: "They’re starting small, but if this is a hit, they may expand their hours to meet demand. My only bone to pick is that they’ve titled the event “Ghetto Grounds”. Why not “Cafe de la Culebra” or something that doesn’t allude to our neighborhood being a run-down slum? ACLA also runs free afternoon art classes for anyone interested." [York Blvd]
