Lewis P. MacAdams Sculpture and Commemorative Brick Program
There is no greater friend to the Los Angeles River than FoLAR’s founder Lewis MacAdams – poet, teacher, activist, and indisputably the River’s most influential advocate. To honor Lewis’ tireless work on behalf of his beloved River, we are thrilled to unveil a permanent public art sculpture at River-adjacent Marsh Park. The sculpture, created by celebrated artist Eugene Daub, will be officially unveiled at our fall gala on October 7th.
For our friends who have followed FoLAR’s journey from the beginning, and for those who have been inspired into River stewardship by Lewis’ advocacy, we invite you to purchase a commemorative brick for permanent placement around the sculpture. Bricks will be personalized with your name and/or your choice of text. Your support of Lewis’ historic efforts to revive the LA River will be visible to the public for generations to come.
Individuals may purchase a brick immediately for a donation of $1,500. Purchases may be paid upfront or prorated over 12 months at $125 per month. A commemorative brick is a benefit for FoLAR sponsors at the Habitat level or above.
For more information on purchasing your personalized commemorative brick, please contact Ivana Gomez del Campo at firstname.lastname@example.org or 323-223-0585.
