"And I don't know if you heard in the news that nipsy Russell. Was killed. And two others were shot in front of his Los Angeles clothing store. And you know, for many of us who the heck is this guy, you know, most of the country. We don't have a clue. But I wanna just fill you in on something. Because this is this is a man. That. Grew up in L A. He he spent over ten years, creating mix tapes and other albums signed a deal with Atlantic records in two thousand seventeen released his Grammy nominated album victory lap in two thousand eighteen. He grew up in a gang culture. And. He said we deal with death and murder. It's like living in a war zone where people die on these blocks. And everybody is a little bit immune to it. And he said, it's it's I guess they call it. That's what they call post traumatic stress when you have people that have been at war for such a long time. And he said. That happened in LA. And. When I really admired about this young man because he was only thirty three. He was the father of two kids. He turned his life around. He grew up with that as his back door his front yard is backyard. The killings the murders drugs infested in it invested in it. And he was able. To work. Get out of the gangs and work with the police. He took his CD. Did he did and went out on the streets and sold one hundred thousand. Hundred thousand dollars worth of CDs in one day. He's charged one hundred bucks a pop. Can you imagine the hustle the determination to do that? Think about it. We're talking about. We're talking about grassroots marketing, we're talking about guerrilla marketing, we're talking about getting in the trenches and going out, and that's a lot of CDs. Even at one hundred bucks a pop. And he did that. Turned his life around and. He really was about truth right now. And so it's really sad that. Someone like this has has died because. And he wrote just before he died. He tweeted having strong enemies is a blessing. Lebron james. Oh, so sad, man. This hurts Drake. Also reached reacted to the news. Posting on Instagram. My whole energy is just at a lower rate. Now hearing this. We just linked for the first time in years and said we were gonna do a song this summer because I had been it because it had been too long. You were having the best run. And I was so happy watching from from from distant from distant fan. Nobody ever talks down on your name. You're a real one. To your people into the rest of us. I'm only doing this here because I want the world to narrow. I saw you as a man of respect. Rest easy. John legend. Just finished. Video with him. They just recorded a song together. And so. You know, this is this is really sad. This is a sad day that young bright light Grammy nominated and all we hear in the news is that a rapper, and we don't know the back story. And so I felt. I felt it was really important for people to know. That he was shot in front of his marathon clothing store. And. That that. It was a really sad thing. Very very sad. He was so open about talking about the drugs and the gun violence. In his early life on the street as as as a gang member. And he said, you know. Inexperience. I it inspired him to become a community organizer and become involved in his project is arts project was which was called destination Crenshaw. And he was planning. Literally planning to me. With the police about the gang violence before he was shot because he said this was getting it was getting out of hand again. So. I don't think that because he had tattoos all over his face. And. Back. He was one way. You know? I think I think the way that we judge is pretty harsh air and. I think it's it's really very very sad. Jerry, very sad. When you when you have someone like him. That he was just such a force. Such a force and every single celebrity. Every single celebrity is just heartbroken. My heart is heavy. We lost a Jim today. Nipsy? Russell is a great example of investing in yourself and your community. He inspired many rest in peace, Damian lemon. It goes on and on and on for for people that wanted him to continue the work. And you know, we say that one person doesn't make a difference. And that's not true. Nipsy did make a difference. And he was enjoying. They say March madness like the rest of us on Saturday night. Less than twenty four hours before he was gone down on Sunday. The rapper was sitting outside was sitting courtside in Hannah Heim for the Texas Tech game. And. I mean. Just it. It just doesn't make any sense. So. And I think that they're saying that someone is claiming to have been the one who shot and killed in the AFC. And he said that a young man under another name. Saw the shooter or something. So I'm hoping that they will find whoever did this. I'm hoping that they will find him or her whoever did this terrible thing. This was a man that really. Really was what you call an inspiration. They tried to revive him on the scene. But it was just didn't obviously didn't. And he died. It was. It's really bad. It's it's a really bad thing. He released these multiple mix tapes over the course of his ten plus year career and just dropped his first studio album the first one and Uganda Grammy non nomination for best rap album just a month ago. And he lost out two Cardi B. But he dropped ten projects independently before releasing his debut album, which was distributed through his own record label. Which was called all money in. And he was no stranger to the streets. Though. He got. He got into a brawl in West Hollywood back in December. Which turned out to be a case of mistaken identity. Trouble followed him. He was very where of it. He he he really had a lot of trouble behind him. But he was trying really hard to to make a difference in his life. And he'd been dating Lauren London since two thousand fifteen and they have two kids. And so anyway, very sad story. We'll be back in a moment. I'm Frankie Boyer. And.

"Nominated for five Academy Awards, including best after Vigo Mortenson best supporting actor Mahershala Ali and best picture now playing. This is press play on KCRW, I'm Madeline brand we all want better public transportation here in LA. But when it comes to exactly where that will happen, and what the effects on neighborhoods will be well, then it becomes complicated. There's a temporary disruption, of course, brought by constructing metro line. And then there are the more permanent changes that come to a neighborhood with new transportation. Well, south LA is trying to make sure those changes will be positive rail line connecting LAX to the rest of metro goes right through Crenshaw at street level, not ideal for safety and other reasons, but local activists and artists are trying to make lemonade they're creating something called destination. Crenshaw does Asian Crenshaw is an open air people's museum that runs along Crenshaw boulevard designed to celebrate the contributions African Americans in Los Angeles to our city to our state country and world that city councilmen marquees Harris Dawson here to talk about destination Crenshaw is one of its planners Naima Mckee. Deputy director and chief curator of the California African American museum. Hi, how are you? I'm great. Thanks and also joining us Francis. Anderton host of KCRW's design and architecture show DNA. Hi, Hello, Madeline name let's begin with you tell us about destination. Crenshaw what is it so destination Crenshaw is a one point three mile long above grade outdoor museum that will go along the Crenshaw LAX LAX line on Crenshaw boulevard. It will feature both permanent and rotating artwork that people can enjoy both when they're on the train or if they often want to see and learn a little bit more about black, Los Angeles. And how did this come together? What was the initial impetus? The impetus actually has just actually what the council member said. There was the realization that the train was going to be above ground and rather than underground, and it was going to be right along a major thoroughfare. And so rather than you know, that the community really fought, right? This the train going above. Ground. But realizing that that that was going to happen. The council member decided to just like you said make lemonade right? And kind of what he likes to say is it turning insult into opportunity. Right. And really kind of thinking about how we can celebrate the community and also provide the visitors was something to see. And that's and that's amazing artwork. That's already being produced in the community. So you envision it. I people get off their planes at LAX get their baggage hop on the train and they're west to wherever they're going through Crenshaw, and they see all this art work. Yes. But it's also an opportunity to celebrate the existing and thriving creative community art exists in along the Crenshaw corridor. So yes, you're going to grab your bag jump on the train, you may not necessarily be as familiar with LA or you may not be as familiar with the Crenshaw area. And so as you're kind of enjoying your ride, then you're kind of seeing like, I said, you know, permanent and rotating, Joe sculpture that's going to sell it. Break the history of black Los Angeles with the intention of you know, encourage people to come back get off the train walk around. They're going to be many many pocket parks. There's many many opportunities for people just to walk along the street to meander to learn to take in like, I said that the creative and the thriving community that's already there and Francis. You have done a lot of reporting on this, and you've interviewed the architect who's overseeing this from a design perspective, it's the same architect who oversaw the African American museum in Washington. That's right. I spent with Zena Howard, she's upon with Parkinson will Parkinson Wilco design the Smithsonian African American museum fantastic building. And yet what's Zena told me? Well, what's so interesting about this challenge for her is that in a way what you swore Smithsonian's you get an actual building. What you're going to get it destination. Crenshaw is not an actual building. But you'll gain to get a Bill experience, which is going to involve walk. Quays it's going to involve parked partly. It's going to involve some really interesting landscaping. But the difference between the two projects is while the Smithsonian was celebrating the larger African American community that wasn't a specific target client while with destination. Crenshaw the process the design process for her and all the others in the design team has been one of die wrecked engagement with the community teasing out what the community wants to see in that design what they feel they need like, for example trees because tons of trees were up. We've if you remember back in two thousand twelve when space shuttle, and was paraded replant, those changes, they not do that. Well, what there's going to be lots of trees as part of destination. Crenshaw's I understand. So anyway, what Zena says it's been so interesting for her is the architect of this project is working with the community to figure out what's going to really make a great. Experience on this one point three mile Panetta was he? Just for people travelling through. It's actually for the people who live there. Yes. Just pick it back up to what you're saying. In terms of community engagement, just to give you a real life examples, such as myself, I have been a part of the Churchill advisory committee for fourteen months, we've been meeting every quarter for two or three days at a time for fourteen months. And so it's not only just kind of hearing our feedback and I'm actually in Angelino. So I'm I'm certainly speaking to someone who's grown up and lived around the area, but also soliciting community input and community support for you know, for quite some time nearly two years now. So this is definitely not kind of popping up overnight or without you know, the input from community members. So yes, so this is both for commuters were coming from LAX. But then also for the community this living there to celebrate its own history. So it's it's definitely for both. And then when it comes to the artists featured artists, you say there'd be like a hundred or plus rotating and permanent. Art installations. We have a lot of celebrated African American artists right here in Los Angeles. I can name. To off the top of my head, Mark Radford? Lauren Halsey with Dabie participating in this. I'm not allowed to give out the name give out names right now. I can definitely say that. We'll be announcing the full artists lists very very soon. But they'll definitely be some some more some well known names. Maybe one of which you've mentioned already. That's all I could say, okay. So I'm going to guess. Mark. No. But we we've definitely arts, and she's very. Yes. But we've definitely tried to solicit both the larger names and the ones that have gotten more museum attention. But then also like I said local producers that have been doing amazing work, but just maybe under known by a larger art going public. So I think it's great. It's going to be in conversation with cut a larger names will Gotcha. Okay. Speaking of not well known names Francis. He spoke to some residents there, and what what did they say about this project? Well, my sense from talking to people is that there's a lot of excitement now in the neighborhood. However, there is the anxiety and also percolating having to do with the effect that art is having in certain neighborhoods. One one woman that we spoke with Felice McInnis. She did raise the specter of gentrification. The Crenshaw neighborhood is changing is demographic is changing and the train is going to bring more change. And this particular resident felt that destination. Quench might actually intensify that. Change. Well, let's go to bring more people to the community. Some of it good. Some of it might not be so good because you know, when places become more popular the rents go up, unfortunately. And that's the bad side of the whole thing. I just miss you experienced could be enriching. So we can.

"At Texas public radio's Joey Palacios speaking with us from eagle pass, Texas. Thanks a lot Joey. Thanks sorry. Days get longer and Hollywood awards season thrusts into full gear, the LA art scene is also looking to showcase and celebrate talent art fairs and festivals are popping up all over the place. And in the next couple of weeks is the launch of desert acts. This is a site specific art biennial in the Coachella valley. There's also the debut of freeze LA. This is the local version of the big global art fair with a bunch of other festivals going on as well Francis. Anderton hosts KCRW's design and architecture, and she's here today with DNA ATC. Hello francis. Hello, steve. So what is it about award season intense old town that is encouraging so many creative types to put art fairs and festivals together. Well, there's a lot of parties that required resting up in lovely dresses. But also you follow the money. And so a lot of galleries and dealers they want to reach the young Hollywood collecting community that people in town of being working to, cultivate, over the last few years if you have a lot of money. Gonna want to collect some art. That's it. And we should say also that one of the fact that you just mentioned freeze LA is actually partly owned by endeavor talent agency, which is helmed by Ari Emanuel. He's a big collector. So that's a very direct link. Let's talk about freeze LA for a moment. This is the first year that it's being held in Los Angeles. Why is that so important well freeze is considered within the art world as kind of the creme de LA creme of art fairs? It started as the magazine and its fares are seen as having an educational mission as being very curated. It's very picky actually about which galleries get to be represented there. It's headed by Victoria sydell. She's head of all the freeze off as and she told us that freezes opening in L A now because she sees the scene in LA having reached a critical mass. I think that's one of the things that we hope to change through freeze LA, maybe the buying hasn't happened here. Because there hasn't been one moment when this international galleries come. Together. Collectors Curators all in one place under one roof at the same time. And that's when buying often happens a point that sometimes maids about LA's art scene is that it lacks a strong collector base that there's plenty of folks here who have money to buy art, but they will tend to spend it in other art capsules like Hong Kong, no, New York, Basel, Switzerland. Paramount studios perhaps apparently, which is where freeze LA we'll be. Well, yes. And isn't that interesting that in a way is a kind of another manifestation of this Hollywood all weld kind of convergence. They wanted to get away from the white box museum experience that will so familiar with. They wanted to have the whole thing sort of being experienced also going to put in a lot of pop-up installations, and those will be interwoven into that back lot also desert acts, which you're a you actually have a role in in a small way. Well, yes, full disclosure here. Steve I have been doing some conversations with some of the office at desert acts that will be part of a desert X podcast. But does X is trying to be kind of the anti-fair in a way, it's free. It's open to the public. It is framed by the desert and mountains of the Coachella valley, you drive around as if you're on a kind of off safari, and you go to different locations and you find installations. That are intended to be both inspiring pieces of art as well as walk give, you know, get you thinking about issues like climate change and the politics of land use and and that's this weekend. This weekend. Yes. But it'll be here through April. Okay. And and freeze LA over paramount is next week next week along with all Los Angeles contemporary, which goes to the Baucau hang up for its tenth. Yes. Startup LA at the kidney, Venice beach hotel, featuring up and coming out is Felix LA at the Hollywood Roosevelt hotel launched by collector dean Valentine, and then there's modernism week in Palm Springs, which is the love fest around mid century modernism so few interested in art. This is a bonanza you'll be back by the way next hour on press play to talk more about another art in a more, permanent way destination. Crenshaw ano- art museum that will run along the length of some train track in the Crenshaw district and will be very interesting to talk about it next hour on press. Play francis. Anderton of course, DNA every Tuesday two o'clock right here on KCRW Francis. Anderton? Thank you. You'll very welcome. Steve..

And that's the bad side of the whole thing. I just miss you experienced could be enriching but keep it. So we can stay here. Okay. Now, you know, what are the concerns about that gentrification in in the LA times Earl far Hutchison who's a longtime activist liver and resident of the community said this will not halt gentrification? I actually agree again. I'm angelino. I I live blocks away from Crenshaw boulevard, and I've I've seen I've seen the changes happening every day. Right. So while the train, I agree will certainly bring a level of attention, and maybe speed up one's awareness of the area. I don't necessarily know if it's going to change with already happening, right? But the point I think of devastation Crenshaw is to both celebrate and also kind of remind. People of the the rich history that's been in the community for a very long time. So I think that even Melville changes are going to happen. I think it's about planting those routes and letting those, you know, letting people know that there has been an active and thriving African American presence in in this area for quite some time. And that so that when people when new people do move in that there is a sense of the place that they're moving into. Okay. And just give us a quick timeline. When this is going to happen has it all been funded? It's going to be officially unveiled to spring twenty two thousand a year from now again anticipation of the train and the artists will be announced later on this year. And then in terms of funding, there'll be plenty of opportunities for major sponsorship. But also gifts if anyone is interested in either sponsoring individual projects or give it to destination. Crenshaw is a whole. All right. Thank you very much. Best of luck. Can't wait to see when it turns out to look like, it's very exciting. Thank you so much.

"Concerns come amidst protests against art galleries in Boyle heights, and some of the neighborhoods so could destination Crenshaw be a Trojan horse for gentrification. We also Naima Keith. She is the deputy director and chief curator at the California African American museum. Yes, I'm well aware of what's been happening in Boyle, heights, and other neighborhoods with these influx of galleries and the recognition rightfully so that it does have an impact not just on the rents but in terms of visibility right for that area. I think what destination Crenshaw has been trying to do is. We've been doing a lot of community gauge meant for very long time. Right. So I've been on the advisory committee for over a year. This is not something that's going just pop up overnight. But there's been a lot of community meetings and gatherings and going to churches and different ways of kind of getting out. The fact that this is happening. So I think that there's been a lot of effort being made to involve a neighborhood, and what's happening. And I think that's maybe one differ. Silence between kind of popping up a gallery versus this initiative, which is very kind of community based that being said, I also think that because the artists directly responding to the community that the work is going to be situated in. I was going to be a different kind of relationship to the work. Right. So while there's a weirdness that does bring a level of like I said disabilities dead neighborhood. I hope that people see that the artwork does reflect the community that's in and not necessarily just kind of outsiders. If you will coming in as well as the artists right all the artists are being selected for their relationship to the Los Angeles area as well. And then Finally, I think that there'll be several initiatives to make sure that the that the neighborhood is involved once dessiken Charles launched, right? So this is not just oh, we're open for business. And there's just no, you know engagement now. One thing Keith points act is that while the Crenshaw district is predominantly African American. Now, the area has a deep and complex history afterwards. All it was shaped not just by its white and black residents. But also bass Japanese community a generation of Japanese Americans who were held in internment camps during World War Two moved into the neighborhood in the late nineteen forties and fifties many worked as landscape gardeners. And you can see their imprint on some of the yards and buildings of Crenshaw and for Naima Keith that history is intertwined with that of her own family. My mom, would you control high school went to Audubon junior high school as well? And actually went to Japanese school as a kid and learn Japanese as a kid she brings it up often because she talks about just how diverse the community was and how she greatly benefited from that diversity. And like I said attended Japanese school as a kid. And so that's something that was brought up very early as that we have to honor the diverse histories. So we've been looking at some of those sites that you could still see some of the architecture and some of the sign age there signals that there were other communities that. Thrived in the Crenshaw area as well. And so for us. It's asking artists to respond to various moments of history, but also asking contemporary artists to respond to the current day Crenshaw boulevard, but again, really it's it's the idea is to give that just passer bys, but also people who are on foot and people become into the area for the first time an idea of come to long standing traditions that have existed in the Crenshaw area knowing that there may be some changes there.

"Will include a new public with it. With a ways to overlook. They'll be pocket parks and park. Let's hundreds of new trees and rotating works of public art by key African American artists and even the street furniture. So the bus bench will tell you a story about maybe biddy Mason. One of the women who came here got her freedom and own half of what is now downtown, Los Angeles. You might hear a story of the over half of the public betas who discovered the city of Los Angeles, where people of African descent, you might hear another story about Tom, Bradley. So before there was Barack Obama and hope and change in a multi-racial coalition. There was Tom Bradley in Los Angeles who became the first African American mayor major city, then only had about a twelve percent African American population. And how much of this is going to manifest in buildings. There are no buildings. There are no doors there, no doors that can close their doors that can open. This is all open air. And this is meant to be experienced by everybody in this meant to be experienced that you can't avoid unless you stay off the street. That's councilman Maki's Harris Dawson now there is a big team involved in bringing destination Crenshaw to life and one of its leaders Zena Howard. She is with Perkins. And well that is the architecture firm that code. Design, the Smithsonian national museum of African American history and culture in Washington DC Howard was it senior project manager. So what did she bring from that pivotal experience to destination? Crenshaw what do I bring from the Smithsonian? I think I cut my teeth. I would say on the eight years of Smithsonian on on on engaging different stakeholders and voices and codifying all that into into the design, and I think this is similar in a way. But better because there's an identifiable community. That's the force behind it that live right in the vicinity of of this project. So it's a little different on different. Also in that Smithsonian didn't have the identifiable community, but had a very identifiable building. This won't have an identifiable building. But it'll have an expression of the community. How will take physical form which is your expertise? We have what we call the foundation design, the connective tissue. So it's one point three miles with multiple points of entry in and out. It's not like a normal museum like, you know, Smithsonian museum, we have one or two points of entry ticketed, you go through somewhat prescribed kind of laid out experience this people can plug in anywhere. So I think the big hand in this is making the decision. There was a lot of debate early on as we engage the community about shit, this soybean toe quantum logically. How didactic should it be digital versus analog? I think people will find that you can plug in and out of the one point three miles, and and get the fulsome story and appreciation of what this community has contributed to our country and beyond also the architecture in the way that we conceive that the metaphor. Although this is distinctly an African American news outdoor museum experience when Turpin. Of experience the landscape patterns derived from F O Centric, by gnomes.
