Lights on L.A., a public art event that celebrating Los Angeles-area artists, will be displayed in Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles from July 15-September 18, 2009. The project, developed and organized by Tarryn Teresa Gallery in downtown Los Angeles, is composed of CFL light bulbs decorated by individual artists and then collected into a single temporary exhibit. Each evening the bulbs will be illuminated at the same time as city street lights, overwhelming the square with the light from the collected assembly of light bulbs.
The installation is timed to coincide with Pershing Square’s free summer concert series. Lights on LA is grateful to Art Squared Gallery for their cooperation in putting together this event. After the event, the gallery will publish a book commemorating the installation, featuring photographs of each light bulb and statements from the participating artists.
