Visually transforming more than a 100 lifeguard towers along 30 miles of LA’s coastline, Portraits of Hope is a major civic engagement involving thousands of youth and adults from schools, hospitals and social service programs. The tower artwork will be created on temporary, professionally installed, flex thin-board panels that will be applied onto the outer surface of each tower structure. The installations will remain through the end of September 2010. Portraits of Hope co-founder Ed Massey joins Larry Mantle to talk about the project which debuts Saturday, May 1st.
You can volunteer with Portraits of Hope this weekend. Click here for more info.
