This year marks the third Open Walls Project, an Art Lab created in partnership with OUTFRONT Media and designed to engage leading contemporary artists in transforming commercial billboards throughout San Diego into works of public art. Staged just before the U.S. presidential election, the 10 billboards will feature works that engage viewers on current political issues and cultural topics such as deportation, immigration, and police brutality. Billboard locations will span from the Tijuana/San Isidro border up throughout downtown and North Park.
The selection of internationally collected artists for this year’s Open Walls Project includes Marcos Ramirez ERRE (featured at MCASD), Sam Durant(Blum & Poe/Los Angeles), Rigo23 (Anglim Gilbert Gallery/San Francisco), Andrea Bowers (Susanne Vielmetter/Los Angeles), and Daniel Guzman(Kurimanzutto/Mexico).
