Mission

Destination Crenshaw is a reparative development project and will be the largest Black public art project in the U.S. and quite possibly the world. Ultimately, the project will commission more than 100 works by Black artists who have strong ties to Los Angeles, creating a pipeline of work and jobs for emerging, seasoned and internationally renowned artists. But the project is so much more than art. It’s mission is nothing less than to place a cultural stamp of Blackness on Crenshaw Boulevard – a stamp akin to those in Chinatown, Mariachi Plaza, Koreatown and other ethnic enclaves.

Leave Your Mark on Destination Crenshaw — Literally

Destination Crenshaw, a 1.3-mile art and culture corridor, aims to preserve the rich legacy of Black Angelenos – from the Angelenos of African descent who cofounded L.A. to the generations of Black Americans who moved to and thrived in the Crenshaw District.

“We’re now in our capital campaign, and we need people who actually want to invest in the future of Black Los Angeles,” says Jason Foster, Destination Crenshaw’s president and chief operating officer.

Investors in the project can literally leave their mark on the museum. The names of foundations or individual donors who make substantial donations to Destination Crenshaw will appear along its corridor, at parklets, and in other high-profile sites.
