Councilmember Huizar Announces 100 Bus Bench Art Installation   
 

Los Angeles City Councilmember José Huizar invites Angelenos to keep an eye out for new public art on the streets debuting this week in Council District 14.  Twenty artistic installations will be placed on bus benches throughout Downtown Los Angeles and Boyle Heights on Friday, July 5, 2013. 
 
The City of Los Angeles’ DoArt Foundation (DoArt) and Make Art Public (MAP) curated the installations in coordination with Martin Outdoor Media after Councilmember Huizar’s office reached out to the company with the idea of filling available spaces on the benches with art until they are leased out for advertisement.
 
“This project gives us the opportunity to bring art to the public right-of-way,” said Councilmember Huizar, describing how the project got started.  “I want to thank all our partners, especially the artists, for lending their talents to the City.”
 
DoArt, a local arts organization focused on public art and education, and MAP, a Montreal-based collective dedicated to creating public art on unsold advertising space, funded and curated the project, selecting artists Dulce Pinzón and Jon Rafman for the installations.
  
Councilmember Huizar has long pushed for more art in public places through his initiation of a 1st Street Arts Corridor in Boyle Heights and leading the effort to adopt a new Mural Ordinance for the City of Los Angeles.
