Announcing the Continuation of The Great Wall Monument
Forthcoming Interpretive Green Bridge at the Great Wall of Los Angeles
February 9, 2021 – Today The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation announced five new projects to be funded through its monuments initiative. Launched in October 2020, the Monuments Project is the Foundation’s groundbreaking grantmaking effort to reimagine and transform commemorative spaces to celebrate America’s diverse history. “Monuments and memorials powerfully shape our understanding of our country’s past, and determine which narratives we honor and celebrate in the American story,” said Elizabeth Alexander, President of the Mellon Foundation.
The Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) is a proud recipient of a three-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support the preservation, activation, and expansion of The Great Wall of Los Angeles Monument.
