Recorded at a special event at
Pacific Avenue Arts Colony (PacArts) in San Pedro!

LINDA GRIMES may well be the key to the arts scene in San Pedro. She is a committed Social Entrepreneur and has lent her considerable community organizing and marketing talents to many causes.

Using the skills she honed during 18 years at AT&T, she helped the Port of Los Angeles High School launch the first secondary charter school in San Pedro, worked with Pacific Energy Partners to inaugurate their Pier 400 Project with a new website and associated branding, and led the Golden State Pops Orchestra to
sustainability for seven years.

Linda is an avid student of creative urban redevelopment strategies and is a founder of the San Pedro Waterfront Arts District, whose mission is to promulgate more public art projects in San Pedro. Linda spearheaded the SP Mural project which was awarded to Luis Sanchez, an artist from PacArts in San Pedro, one of EngAGE’s first multi-generational artists colonies.
