If you’re at the LA Art Show today, we highly recommend you check out one of our favorite exhibits by one of our favorite artists – Art Lives Here: S.C. Mero Presented by Art Share L.A. She has her remote-controlled traffic cone with her, and if your timing is right, she might take you and the traffic cone for a spin around the convention room floor.
“Art Share L.A. has partnered with skid-row based, emerging guerrilla artist S.C. Mero to bring a taste of the streets of Downtown Los Angeles to LA Art Show. Embodying the nature of downtown, the onsite installation pieces are just a teaser to the larger site map of her work – which guides attendees into downtown to explore our community under the guise of a pseudo street art scavenger hunt. Each of her site-specific, clever creations calls attention to issues surrounding homelessness, gentrification, drug use, global warming, and more. The goal of this project is to encourage further exploration of underground art, arts activism, and social justice in the Downtown community in a way that is inviting and accessible for everyone.”
