Bowtie Project

Clockshop uses the Bowtie as an outdoor classroom by organizing educational programs at the site. These programs encourage student-driven site exploration, discussion-based processing, and creative response.

We recently completed a season of Bowtie Storytellers, a program that enabled youth from all over Los Angeles to develop skills in nature interpretation and introduced them to new ways of thinking about art and the environment.

Field trips are available upon request, and we do our best to design customized, age appropriate tours to meet specific needs. Our education programs integrate contemporary art and environmental education. If your interest is specific to the LA River, Friends of the LA River (FOLAR) offers a variety of education programs.

For more information, or to request a field trip, contact Lindsey Lee Eichenberger, Public Programs Director, at

Pilot year funding for our education program was provided by the Ralph M. Parsons Foundation and the California State Parks Foundation.
