Chicken Corner just picked up news of the following events, at the Cornfield, as Not a Cornfield is known in the neighborhood. The link to Echo Park? Beside the fact that the press release was sent to me by an Echo Park resident, the Cornfield can be seen from Elysian Park, near the eastern entrance. Not much time to tie that bathrobe belt and run out the door, but if you're reading this Wednesday night you may be able to make the 5:45 a.m. commencement of four days of events.
The general public is invited to join in honoring the Tongva ancestors at Cornhenge, the Metabolic sculpture, in the area previously know as Not A Cornfield. The indigenous community of Los Angeles honors its ancestors through this sunrise ceremony 5:45 a.m. Please join us. Bring your songs, your drums, your dances and your heart. We will go in procession from Cornhenge to the Under Spring area, where a public Ofrenda will be accessible for the community to place their flowers, candles, photos, or any other remembrance in the name of their loved ones.
This sunrise ceremony will commence the on-going activities at Under Spring for the next four days.
