Shatto Gallery presents the Our River: city floodplain, an exploration of the iconic Los Angeles River. The exhibition runs from August 12, 2023 – September 16, 2023.


Shatto Gallery Our River

This exhibition aims to shed light on the LA river’s significance while inspiring its restoration and revival of the lost species. Stretching an impressive 51 miles, the Los Angeles River winds from the Simi Hills and Santa Susana mountains, meandering through numerous communities before reaching its destination in Long Beach. Despite its prominence, a startling number of Angelenos remain unaware of its existence.

The goal is to showcase thought-provoking artworks and stimulating critical dialogue. Thus Our River: city floodplain intends to amplify the urgency for preserving and revitalizing this historical landmark.
