How Art is Changing Public Spaces

On the Nov. 13 edition of the Reporter Roundup, KPCC reporters and a KCET digital producer discuss a marine heat wave, skipped Census questions, how dissatisfied LAPD officers are with their chief and how art is infiltrating public spaces. 

The (Marine) Blob 
The Blog was the largest marine heat wave ever recorded in the northeast Pacific. Jacob Margolis talks about the second hottest heat wave hitting our coast and what it means for ocean life. 

Census Questions 
According to preliminary data, people skipped more questions than usual on their 2020 Census forms. Caroline Champlin discusses which questions people were more prone to omit this time. 

LAPD Chief Approval 
A majority of Los Angeles Police Department officers who responded a survey aren’t satisfied with the leadership of Chief Michel Moore. Frank Stoltze says officers disagree with the chief’s response to Black Lives Matter, for example. 

Art in Public Spaces 
Art is infiltrating public spaces even more despite museums and performance venues being closed during the pandemic. Carren Jao of KCET shares how COVID-19 is changing public spaces
