ROSE RIVER

Building Bridges Art Exchange is hosting a compelling installation that acknowledges each life taken by COVID-19 on the Westside of Los Angeles. The Westside installation, in the main gallery of Building Bridges Art Exchange offers visitors an opportunity to grieve by contemplating a wall of roses while listening to music by celebrated Los Angeles based composer Yuval Ron and taking solace in a meditative induction created by Rose River Memorial co-founder Marcos Lutyens. The installation features felt roses made by volunteers across the country, remembering each westside death from Malibu south to El Segundo, and east to La Cienega Boulevard. This builds on an inaugural installation at Self Help Graphics that memorializes those lost to COVID-19 on the Eastside.


“For this Westside memorial, our goal is to include as many locally handmade roses as possible, to deeply engage the community with this act of collective grief,” said Rose River memorial co-founder Marcos Lutyens. “People who make roses tell us that it brings them great comfort and peace in these difficult days. Family members who are grieving are comforted by this idea of strangers recognizing and remembering the enormity of this pandemic in such a beautiful way.”


Visitors to the Rose River Memorial installation in the main gallery can also experience two other galleries showing #CONFINAMIENTO by PERFO-RED MX and COVID-19 ARTIST STORIES. Visits are by appointment until January 16 with COVID-safe protocols in place.
