“The movie takes a look at four different government-sanctioned projects in four locations, detailing their backstory, planning and execution. The artists came to the projects from all different angles – from painting and other visual art, to environmental perspectives and even cooking. There was a decidedly cultural component … the purpose of all the projects documented in the film was to cultivate art and community in the selected LA neighborhoods.”
“This project shows that like libraries, parks, and recreation centers, artwork can and should be understood as civic infrastructure.”
“Record-breaking Milwaukee Film Festival attendance. Highlights include the world premieres of two feature films … Dear Coward on the Moon and Civic Art: Four Stories From South Los Angeles.”
