About the Project

A South L.A. art space focused on art and community healing, Crenshaw Dairy Mart was founded by Patrisse Cullors, Alexandre Dorriz and noé olivas, artists who share a deep commitment to social justice. Recently, Crenshaw Dairy Mart launched a multi-faceted initiative titled Pray for LA that will encompass multiple projects aimed at confronting the relationship between systemic racism and the ways the pandemic has affected communities of color. For Things With Feathers, The Mistake Room’s trio of projects for Art Rise, the collective activates domingo, a rolling social sculpture based out of a 1967 Chevrolet step-van repurposed as a rolling space for art and healing. Working with the largely working-class immigrant communities of Pico Union, olivas puts the delivery van to work as a site of service to its peers and community, distributing care in the form of food, healing kits and art supplies and providing a site for collective creativity to a community disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. Deeply inspired by Southern California custom lowrider culture when conceiving domingo, the first renovation olivas prioritized to the vehicle when acquired in 2011 was to lower and alter the airbag suspension for the vehicle. This system not only provides a smoother and safer ride, where each wheel may lower independently, but it is also a play off the philosophy of “low and slow,” to stay grounded, rooting into its habitat, to move slow, to be accessible through function and through programming and to bow for its audiences.

WE RISE honors the profound contribution of Tongva Elder and WE RISE artist Julia Bogany who passed away March 28, 2021 in Los Angeles. We uplift her voice as an incredible leader who used arts and culture to educate, elevate and build community.

“We, the Indigenous People, the Traditional Caretakers of this landscape are the direct descendants of the First People who formed our lands, our worlds during creation time. We have always been here. Our Ancestors prepared and became the landscapes and worlds for the coming of humans with order, knowledge and gifts embedded in the landscape. Our Ancestors imbued us, who now live here, with the responsibility and obligations of our original instructions as told to us in our creation stories. We are guided by protocol and etiquette to be part of, take care of, and ensure the welfare of the NATURE, the extended family and community defined in its most inclusive expression. We pass those teachings and responsibilities onto our children, grandchildren and many generations to come.”

- Julia Bogany. October, 2020.
