LBMA and The Urban Canvas

Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape” is an exhibition in Long Beach hosting thirteen different urban contemporary artists exploring the different ways that people explore and express on the same type of canvas. The collection explores and displays what people are doing today, in a community with ever changing tastes and a wide range of style.

Each artist was provided a space in the exhibit to create his or her own site-specific piece of work. Using both traditional and non-traditional art mediums they covered their own wall or corner with art that represented their tastes and style. When the exhibition ends this late September the murals will be painted over and other materials will be deconstructed. This is truly an in the moment display of the contemporary art world.
