Photos: Billboards Turn into Art Around Town

Our June member drive is live: protect this resource!
Right now, we need your help during our short June member drive to keep the local news you read here every day going. This has been a challenging year, but with your help, we can get one step closer to closing our budget gap. Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership.

As mentioned in December, February through the end of March is host of a great project that takes billboards back from corporations and gives them to artists. “In How Many Billboards?, the streets of Los Angeles become the walls of the exhibition, and the city itself becomes a large museum,” explained Kimberli Meyer, Director of the MAK Center and initiator and co-curator of the exhibition, when the project was announced.

A map is listed in the above photo gallery, but if you want to take an open-topped bus tour ($14), tickets are available for tours tomorrow and next week Saturday. The artist reception is also tomorrow (there are also plenty of other events going on, check here for full listings)
