WEST HOLLYWOOD — The city has announced four new art events at multiple locations in the city during the month of May, as part of the city’s Art on the Outside temporary public art program.
Photographs by Terry Konrath have been installed at William S. Hart Park, 8341 De Longpre Ave., through Nov. 30. The exhibit features photographs by Konrath printed on vinyl banners and installed along the north-facing fence line of the park, visible from Sunset Boulevard.
The photographs were taken during the second West Hollywood Halloween Street Celebration in 1988 and honor the glamour of the city’s drag community.
A second exhibit, Acorn Treasure Hunt by Sophia Lee, has been installed at several locations. Lee has hidden 60 unique, handcrafted acorns throughout the city for the community to discover (and take home) with the aid of an online map with clues that will lead people to different acorns. Those finding an acorn are to note it on the map or leave it behind for the next person to discover. The online map can be accessed at bit.ly/Acorn_Map.
A third exhibit, We’ve Always Been Here by Britt Westveer, is on display at City Hall through next April. The artwork is a collection of three large, printed posters featuring digital collages made from found imagery and the artist’s own archives depicting the long history of diverse LGBT people who have “always been here.”
The final exhibit, Ain’t I A Woman (?/!), is a performance artwork by Nicole Goodwin that will be conducted at 6 p.m. May 19 and 20 in the enclosed courtyard of Plummer Park’s Great Hall, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd. Goodwin is a New York-based performance artist. RSVP is required at bit.ly/GOODWYN.
The city’s Art on the Outside Program is a temporary art program that installs rotating artworks throughout the city. Most exhibitions remain on display between six months and three years.
