Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti spoke at a fundraiser at the L.A. river on June 30, kicking off the Mayor’s bid for a second term. An installation by Woodbury University’s ACE Center provided the backdrop for Mayor Garcetti’s speech, which was held at Mission Art Projects, an East Bank Collective Group of Artists east of the L.A. river.
In his speech, Garcetti referred to Los Angeles as “a city with fantastic resources in higher education.” He pointed out Woodbury University as an example. “Schools like Woodbury, which made this fantastic installation, are raising Los Angeles’ status as having the best schools in the nation.”
The event, which was hosted by Geoff Anenberg of Creative Space, drew a diverse crowd of supporters, including Woodbury School of Architecture faculty members Elizabeth Timme and Barbara Bestor as well as Mia Lehrer, who is a Woodbury School of Architecture advisory board member.
