BILLBOARDS
 
VOTE! (Save America)
VOTE! (Save America)

The VOTE! billboard was designed to remind people that this election is not about party politics or one candidate; it is about voting for the values in which we believe. Whether it is the President of the United States or a local judge, every vote matters.

Say Their Names
Say Their Names

This billboard honors the victims of police violence and to show these victims as people, not numbers. The fact is that data regarding black deaths by police are often under reported or falsely reported as we have seen in the case of Sandra Bland. We do not know the real numbers. What is important is that 99% of officers are not charged with a crime, making this kind of violence easier to perpetrate. Each person on this billboard had a family, a life and dreams.

Got Drought?
Got Drought?

Got Drought? is a public art project and social media campaign aimed at raising people’s awareness about how much water it takes to produce meat and dairy as opposed to a plant-based diet. Los Angeles-based artists Karen Fiorito and Alex Arinsberg teamed together to erect a series of billboards about the relationship between water, pollution and diet, with an emphasis on the drought in California.
