Doing Pennants: A group show of artist-made flags organized by Paul W. Evans
January 12 - February 24, 2013
Opening reception: Saturday, January 12 from 6-9pm
Fifth Floor Gallery is pleased to present Doing Pennants. This group show of artist-made flags brings together over 100 contributors from Los Angeles and beyond to celebrate the pennant. Each artist was assigned to create one triangular flag using any material and subject matter of their choice. These flags will be collectively strung in banner style throughout Fifth Floor Gallery to honor the carnivalesque heraldry of this ubiquitous free-flying form. Participants include:
