This public performance art event will take place in the streets of Los Angeles on April 24, 2010 along with an exhibition of guest artists from New York, Philadelphia, Dallas, New Mexico and the most dynamic & diverse City of Los Angeles beginning at Korean Cultural Center on Wilshire Blvd.

A group of participating artists will move through the street with their own objects of art attached to their bodies as a symbol heralding where their individual art first originated. This art gesture emphasizes not only why art is so important in the daily lives of artists, but also why art is needed to be viewed by the public. Art and culture should be able to create harmony and balance within its community and coexisting with one another as a whole.

A motivating inspiration for artists is to create an art object as a way of expression. But, that motivation can be a powerful tool that allows interaction among humanity. The experience has engaged the lives of artists
to challenge the significant meaning of human interaction within the community.

The title of the project “ art is me, art is you, a public performance art project series has begun since the summer of 2005 in Philadelphia, New York(2006), Seoul(2006), Yan-Bien(China-2006), Philadelphia(2007) , Los Angeles(2010).
