I have to admit I am totally loving the trend of public buildings turning their blank walls into gallery’s. It brings life to otherwise drab bureaucratic edifices. It gives artists a chance to share their view of the world with others.
LA County’s Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration is turning a portion of its 3rd floor into a gallery. The first installation takes place on 10/10 and will be open to the public for viewing at 9AM. The idea came about when Stephen Coleman asked the county if he could start up a gallery there. The answer was yes, and from there many people in the LA County offices put things in motion to make it happen.
The first exhibit will include images from Stephen’s portfolio of LA Metro and County landscapes and neighborhoods. The flier he sent me is included here and does get bigger with a click to give you an even better idea as to the variety of images of LA he has to share.
DETAILS: 9AM October 10. 2008.
Kenneth Hahn Hall of Administration, 3rd floor, 500 W Temple Street, Los Angeles 90012.
