activism http://design.org/tags/activism en Bringing Public Art Back: Askew One's New Mural for Los Angeles & Sister Cities Program http://design.org/blog/bringing-public-art-back-askew-ones-new-mural-los-angeles-sister-cities-program <p>On April 21st, a new mural was unveiled at "LA Freewalls Inside" at <a href="http://www.lalaarts.com/" target="LALA Gallery">LALA Gallery</a>. Why is this noteworthy? Unbeknownst to me and likely to the majority of the population, in 2002 Los Angeles prohibited the creation of mural work (on public or private buildings). The Los Angeles Freewalls project hopes to change that.</p> <p><img src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/imagecache/blog-full-scale/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_00.jpg" alt="design, la, mural" title="design, la, mural" class="imagecache-blog-full-scale" /></p> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="620" height="416" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_01.jpg?1335832838" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-images"> <div class="field-label">Images:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_00.jpg?1335832945" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="652" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_02_0.jpg?1335832946" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="682" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_03.jpg?1335832947" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_04.jpg?1335832947" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="250" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_05.jpg?1335832948" /> </div> <div class="field-item even"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="620" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_06.jpg?1335832948" /> </div> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_images" width="620" height="830" title="design, la, mural" alt="" src="http://design.org/sites/default/files/blog/2012/04/30/lala_murals_07.jpg?1335832949" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-featured"> <div class="field-label">Featured:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Not Featured </div> </div> </div> <p><a href="http://design.org/blog/bringing-public-art-back-askew-ones-new-mural-los-angeles-sister-cities-program" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://design.org/blog/bringing-public-art-back-askew-ones-new-mural-los-angeles-sister-cities-program#comments activism design graffiti losangeles street art video Tue, 01 May 2012 00:38:20 +0000 wardandrews 4217 at http://design.org Protect IP /SOPA Breaks the Internet: Infographic Video and Internet Blackout http://design.org/blog/protect-ip-sopa-breaks-internet-infographic-video-and-internet-blackout <p>This infographic <a href="http://design.org/video" target="video">video</a> comes to us from <a href="http://fightforthefuture.org/" target="Fight for the Future">Fight for the Future</a>, a non-profit organization helping organize the strike against the web censorship bills SOPA and PIPA. </p> <p>We've all grown accustomed enjoying the internet as a free and open marketplace of ideas, information and imagery, but the SOPA / PIPA bills could change our experience and access drastically.
