Is Drive-By Art a Good Thing?

Proving the old saying that necessity is the baby mama of invention, LAXART teams up with the Orange County Museum of Contemporary Art Biennial to bring contemporary art to public attention, Angeleno style.

For the next few weeks, two billboards, one in West Hollywood and the other in Culver City, feature new work by Biennial artists Raymond Pettibon and Karl Haendel. Part of the exhibition’s extensive off-site programming, these nods to the dominance of car culture are either a great idea or represent total capitulation to L.A.-ziness. Guess if you really like them, you can always pull over for a longer look.
