The first citywide public art biennial will be up across the city starting this Saturday, July 16, and lasting until August 14. Titled CURRENT:LA Water, the project is aimed at exploring Los Angeles’s relationship to the “critical resource” of water in its many forms; installations will be found at water-associated sites like Echo Park and the Hansen Dam, as well as multiple sites along the LA River, says a release from the city’s Department of Cultural Affairs.
See the map for locations and brief descriptions of upcoming installations (one for each City Council district). A full calendar of the many events taking place at the installation sites is here.
