You are invited to attend an exhibition discussion for It Really is a River.

There will also be opportunities to view the accompanying exhibition (curated by Hinton and Miller) in the North Lobby Gallery and to peruse selected Los Angeles River archival materials in the Special Collections Reading Room.
This event is part of The People’s Archive, a collaboration between LA River X, Pomona College and The Claremont Colleges Library, with generous support from California Humanities, a non-profit partner of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to all – no registration required!
