The story goes like this....
During the 1920's - 1930's automobile accidents were becoming a common occurrence, kids were being hit while crossing busy streets to and from school. The city decided to build these pedestrian tunnels for safety. Fast forward a couple decades, during non-school hours, the tunnels were being used as safe havens for drug users, gangs and the cities homeless population. For some reason the City decided to close a large majority of them, leaving a few open for school children to walk through.
And now for the first time in Los Angeles history, a coffee roaster - with a gigantic dream for a small community - convinces the city into opening one of these tunnels for a monthly, and one night only, art show!
Hooray for Yancey Quinones - Coffee Roaster, Entrepreneur, Supporter of Building Sustainable Communities, Dreamer, Do-er....
