DESCRIPTION

It's been 10 years...

August 2001: Artist RICHARD ANKROM, disguised as a state employee, takes a direct approach to correcting guide signs on the California freeway system. With the manufacture and installation of a duplicate route shield Interstate 5 and directional North signs to aid motorists on the 110 Pasadena Freeway in downtown Los Angeles, indicating an exit two miles ahead. Documentation of conceptual, performance, functional and public art, is taken to the realm of civic duty.

Richard will show documentation and video of this art intervention and its aftermath.
