Curating Los Angeles Turns Two!


On September 17, 2010 I launched Curating Los Angeles (CLA). I remember publishing that first blog post and wondering whether anyone would find this site and read what I wrote. I also had no idea how long I’d be at this – would I continue after the first couple of months?
