Grand Park’s Celebration Spectrum by dublab, created for ArtRise (in collaboration with Tanya Aguiñiga and curator Mark “Frosty” McNeill) @ Grand Park
May 1 @ 5:00 am – May 31 @ 10:00 pm
🎊🎉 THIS MAY Celebrate with Grand Park’s Celebration Spectrum by @dublab, a month-long public art installation, programming, and digital experience created for Art Rise in collaboration with @tanyaaguiniga and curator Mark “Frosty” McNeill (@dubfrosty). ⁠

🎊🎉 The project creates space for the missed celebrations in Los Angeles following a year in isolation. As a proposed joyful ode, the installations highlight the importance of marking time through gathering and the mental health benefits of communal celebration. Additional programming and digital experiences reflect the multi-faceted ways in which Los Angeles County’s diverse populations express their joy. Grand Park’s Celebration Spectrum, a TMC Arts program, transforms the outdoor expanse of Grand Park into a deconstructed party, unfolding in a progression of four installations that represent the arc of an epic celebration. Responding to the hurt and heightened anxieties associated with the pandemic, the project offers the communities in Los Angeles the opportunity to heal and re-emerge thanks to the transformative power of the arts.⁠
