River and the Malibu Beaches, which I really think are two of the great public spaces in Los Angeles that for decades haven’t functioned as great public spaces. . . even though you think that they have nothing in common, our concrete river and our most beautiful beaches.”

That’s Jenny Price, environmentalist, academic and artist who has made her “subject” the LA River and LA’s Beaches.

Jenny talks to DnA about how the river and beaches are connected, how to gain access for all through recreation, and why public space and the environment are a social justice issue.
