Linda Grimes

Cultural Policy
City of Los Angeles, Council District 15

Linda Grimes, a Cultural Policy Fellow from San Pedro, represents Council District 15, where she is the Managing Director of the San Pedro Waterfront Arts District. Grimes has been organizing to enter San Pedro into the running for the Cultural District two-year pilot program conducted by the California Arts Council. The result of her labor is the formation of a coalition of San Pedro-based arts and cultural organizations: the San Pedro Chamber of Commerce, CD 15 Councilman Joe Busciano, the Grand Vision Foundation, and Angels Gate Cultural Center. San Pedro was selected as a semifinalist, and Grimes hopes that her coalition will encourage its selection.
