Conversations with Gronk

Gronk has been a strong supporter of the Latino Urban Forum. His early work in ASCO, an innovative artist collaborative started in the 70's, reflect how artists in East Los Angeles at the time were rethinking urban space. Their Day of the Dead celebrations in Evergreen Cemetery, taping people to walls to create murals and dinners on Arizona Street's median island illustrate the enacted environment. This concept is explored in the book.

LUF believes people should have the ability to express themselves in the urban environment.
