Way Out West

July 7 - August 17, 2014

Venue
Mission District

Location
San Francisco, CA


Three Creativity Explored artists (Andrew Li, John Patrick McKenzie, and Kate Thompson) are included in The Art City Project's first public art exhibition, Way Out West.

The exhibition repurposes outdoor advertising space in San Francisco’s Inner Mission to turn the neighborhood into a public art gallery for six weeks. Way Out West is the pilot experience, purposefully launching in a city with a rich history of acceptance and tolerance for new and provocative ideas.

Curated by Tova Lobatz and Jenny Sharaf, the month-long exhibition will span billboards, transit shelters, and bus takeovers by artists exploring the role of art in public spaces and news ways of embedding art in daily life.

The reception for Way Out West will be held at Heron Arts, where the original works and limited edition prints will be available for sale. The event is open to the public and is within walking distance from the artwork in Way Out West. All proceeds from ticket sales will support public art through the Art City Project and its fiscal sponsor, Intersection for the Arts.

Featured artists: Andrew Li, John Patrick McKenzie, and Kate Thompson.
