Recap: "Public Works" at LALA Gallery
This past weekend LALA Gallery hosted the first part of a two-part exhibition, Public Works, featuring large scale paintings by renowned contemporary artists in one of public media’s most controversial spaces – the billboard. This show came about as a collaboration between LA Freewalls and MacDonald Media to benefit the organization Art Share LA. Contributing artists include How & Nosm, Insa, Push, Revok, Risk, Ron English, Seen, Shepard Fairey, Trustocorp, WCA Crew, Uglar, and Zes.
Those in attendance got a chance to see a few of the artists’ billboards up close in the gallery before being installed high over the streets of Los Angeles. After the run of the exhibition, which is up through August 17th, the works will be on display on billboards throughout Los Angeles on a rotating basis throughout the next year.
