The Open Walls Project works with building owners and community partners to create large-scale exhibitions on billboards, bridges, construction fencing, and buildings.
Project Development. Curation. Execution.
The Open Walls Project ran for three years (2014-2016) in San Diego as part of Art San Diego Contemporary Art Fair. The Exhibition featured large-scale versions of local artists’ works and mounted the images across billboards throughout the city.
