Public Art Inspiration from LA: Billboards-for-Art Project

Everyone seems to be swooning over a current public art project in Los Angeles that turns billboards over to various artists. And you know what? I'm going to join right in. Given the billboard-tax-for-art and illegal-signs debates ongoing in Toronto, this has some special resonance for Hogtown. The project is coordinated by the Mak Centre for Art and Architecture and features art by Brandon Lattu, Martha Rosler, Kori Newkirk and others. It looks like the project will continue through March.

Tip of the hat to Stanzie Tooth for the suggestion.
