Scores for the City::

Winter 2011, Guide 2 of the Llano Del Rio Guide can be picked up at the Bicycle Kitchen among other places. It's a lusciously designed pocket poster of poetry, puppets and potions about our fair city. It smells good, too!

One of our Cooks, Jonah Schwartz, wrote a beautiful piece about riding in Crank Mobs called "A View of the City from the Cycle Seat."

Guide 1 was Map for An Other LA.

About Llano Del Rio Collective:
The Llano Del Rio Collective aims to expand cultural, social, and political imagination of Los Angeles through the production of thematic guides, related events and the hosting of a speakers bureau. We aim to frame practices, rather then be a practice.

The project draws its name from the socialist colony founded in California’s Antelope Valley by Job Harriman in the early Twentieth Century.

Though not strictly a collective we negotiate collectivist ideals with an advisory group currently constituted by Katie Bachler, Sandra de la Loza, John Burtle, Adam Overton, Hector Gallegos, Ashley Hunt, Tom McKenzie, Ken Ehrlich, Kelly Marie Martin, Steve Anderson, Janet Sarbanes, Fritz Haeg, Kimberly Varella, Ava Bromberg, Nicole Antebi, Lara Bank, Jen Hofer, and Colin Dickey. The Llano Del Rio Collective is organized by Robby Herbst.
