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)
