Street Beats - Challenge Grant Recipient 2015
On February 20, 2016, the Street Beats Challenge Grant event transformed the intersection of Crenshaw Boulevard and Florence Avenue through music and a traffic safety demonstration. Musical instruments and DJs were placed on each corner of the intersection and, using wireless speakers, anyone on the street was welcome to create beats, melody, and music. The event also demonstrated temporary painted curb extensions and a pedestrian scramble that allowed pedestrians to cross in every direction while all cars were stopped. Huge thanks to the Hyde Park community, volunteers, and our partners: the Office of Councilmember Marqueece Harris-Dawson, Community Health Councils, T.R.U.S.T. South LA, Ride On! Bike Co-op, and Studio MMD.
