Public Art On the Rise…Literally And Figuratively

May 26, 2010

Maybe you’ve noticed them, or maybe you’ve been too concentrated on your treacherous traffic-dodging, but we’re digging the MAK Center’s “Art In Stead” campaign smattered across the billboards of Lala Land. I’ve spotted the gridlock conversation pieces and pondered what they could possibly be (actually hoping they weren’t yet another odd marketing ploy for some straight to DVD movie) and was pleasantly surprised when I visited the Schindler House for a LAND event (if you don’t know about THEIR mission, highly suggest you click and join!) to find all of them photographed in one space for more than just a glance between horn-blaring, taillights and multiple jerks cutting me off. These larger-than-life canvases are on view at the historied space (worth seeing itself) until May 30th.

    I’m telling you, LA has the most relevant art scene in the country right now.
