LAND: An exhibition spanning from Jacksonville to LA
November 2013 – The Los Angeles Nomadic Division’s Manifest Destiny Billboard Project consists of 10 artists, 10 chapters and begins with 10 billboards in the greater Jacksonville area (unveiled last month), progressing over 2,000 miles along Interstate-10. Roadside quotes by artist Gertrude Stein combine with gas station libraries. Photographic images of lush vegetables are soon to loom above the Mojave’s desert landscape. The project represents America’s expansion, east to west, across North America. The final 10 billboards will be revealed in and around Los Angeles in Spring 2015.
