ART/ SOCIAL STATEMENT/ VANDALISM ?
Art has many purposes, among which is to provoke social awareness and response. Is this grizzly outline in an alley between shops on the Sunset Strip art? For the store keepers, it might be shocking graffiti or to pop artists a great public statement. When I took this photograph in the 1990s, many people who saw me simply glanced at the image in the alley and quickly walked away.
Your Museum collects photographs and artifacts related to contemporary history and art. When our headquarters becomes a reality, we'll be vigorously adding work done in the 21st century to our collections.
A great Museum of history and culture in the San Fernando Valley MATTERS!
