The city of West Hollywood is pleased to announce four art events, art installations and exhibitions happening at multiple locations throughout the city in the month of May, as part of the city’s Art on the Outside temporary public art program.
Scheduled events and exhibitions include: “Photographs by Terry Konrath” by Terry Konrath through Nov. 30 at William S. Hart Park, located at 8341 De Longpre Ave. “Photographs by Terry Konrath” is an exhibition of vintage photographs, printed on vinyl banners and installed along the north-facing fence line of William S. Park (visible from Sunset Boulevard). The photographs were captured by Los Angeles-based photographer Konrath’s flash-less 35mm camera during the second West Hollywood Halloween Street Celebration in 1988 and honors the sparkles, glamour and confidence of West Hollywood and its drag community.
In “Acorn Treasure Hunt” by Sophia Lee, on view at multiple West Hollywood locations, the artist 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 to different acorns. If you find an acorn and take it home, please note it on the map or leave it behind for the next person to discover. Access the online map at bit.ly/acorn_map.
“We’ve Always Been Here” by Britt Westveer – through April 30, 2024 at City Hall, 8300 Santa Monica Blvd. – will debut a 10×20 wheatpasted mural on City Hall. 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 LGBTQIA+ people who have “always been here.”
“Ain’t I A Woman (?/!): The Woman performance” by GOODW.Y.N. will be shown May 19 and 20 at 6 p.m. at Plummer Park’s Great Hall, 7377 Santa Monica Blvd. New York-based performance artist GOODW.Y.N. aka Nicole Goodwin will present the West Coast debut of “Ain’t I A Woman (?/!): The Woman.” The performance artwork is a poetic dedication to love, loss and intimacy that comes with the identity of womanhood. Performance contains nudity. RSVP is required at bit.ly/goodwyn.
The Art on the Outside Program is the city’s temporary art program that installs rotating artworks and can include sculpture, murals, digital art and other outdoor works. Most exhibitions remain on display between six months and three years. All projects are subject to the Art on the Outside Program Review and Approval Process.
