Art, Golf Combine as Little Tokyo Open Tees Off

State Assemblymember Miguel Santiago hailed the event as an example of what is needed in many communities, “a place that families can enjoy together.”

Also helping to launch the project were: Thien Ho of the Los Angeles City Cultural Affairs Commission, representing Mayor Eric Garcetti; and Gina Mordeaux, director of state government affairs for the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, which funded the project in association with the national nonprofit KaBoom!

Dan Kwong, who collaborated with Oscar-winning actor/director Chris Tashima in creating his historically themed entry, spoke on behalf of all nine participating artists, including Andrea Aguilar; Lina Cheng; Mario Correa and Zen Sekizawa of Mano Ya; Adina Mori-Holt; Brie Wakeland; and Mei Zhao (pictured below).
