WORD ON THE STREET ART INSTALLATIONS IN GLENDALE

Glendale, CA - Multi-media artist Scott Froschauer will be featured at two events for his Word On The Street art installations in parks and libraries throughout Glendale. Word On The Street utilizes the materials and visual language of street signs, replacing the traditional language (Stop, Do Not Enter…) with positive affirmations.

  • Installation Unveiling - Thursday, November 2, 2 pm, at the NW corner of Glendale’s Central Park behind the Downtown Central Library, 222 East Harvard Street, Glendale CA 91205. Visitors to Central Park can park in the parking structure on Harvard across from Downtown Central, enter the library and exit through the rear doors into Central Park.
  • Artist’s Talk - Join Scott Froschauer for insight into his process in conjunction with the unveiling of 20 pieces from his “The Word on The Street” series, on Friday, November 3, 7 pm, at Downtown Central Library. His work is derived from his experiences at The Burning Man Art Festival and in this talk he will explore what it means to make art for Burning Man and how he nurtured those ideas into something that could grow outside of Burning Man in the rest of the world through Street Art and, eventually, into Government Sponsored Public Art.

Visitors to Downtown Central Library receive 3 hours FREE parking across Harvard Street at the Marketplace parking structure with validation at the service desk. Handicapped parking is available on the east side of the building.
