Andrea Bowers is passionate about creating art with powerful messages. Over the span of her career she has utilized her artistic platform as a means to create awareness on current societal issues. Her current display at the Hammer Museum in Westwood (Los Angeles), does just that through its activist stance against the Dakota Access Pipeline. Consisting of a mural, blinking neon signs and interactive take-home ribbons (yes, for once you can touch and take home part of an exhibition!) this installation spans three walls along and near the stairs of the lobby entrance. It will be on view until July 16th!
The Hammer museum is free and open to the public Tues-Fri 11-8 and Sat & Sun 11-5
