Last month I licensed five images from my Pasadena PD and Police Series to be used in the upcoming “Cross Colours Exhibition” at the California African American Museum here in Los Angeles. It is the second time so far the CAAM has shown my work and I trust this exhibition, which opens next week, will be as good as the last one.
In December 2016 I had an image included in a very unique exhibition here in Los Angeles, The Billboard Creative. The exhibition takes unsold billboard spaces and features one artist, and one of their works, on each billboard for a month in December. My billboard was on Wilshire Boulevard and Dunsmuir Avenue just east of LACMA.
I am always happy to have my work seen, but I especially happy that Mona Kuhn included this image in the group of 45 selected artworks for the 2016 Billboard Creative. I love the concept of putting artwork on billboards in a place like Los Angeles which is such a car centered society. I also felt this was the perfect image for the venue and I get excited to think of the thousands of people who had a chance to see one of my most important photographs.
