WEST HOLLYWOOD, October 20, 2020 – The City of West Hollywood presents the public art installation RELAX UR OK and ONE LOVE by artist Scott Froschauer, his first foray into neon art. The installation is available for viewing at the traffic median at the intersection of Santa Monica Boulevard and Holloway Drive.
Using the institutionalized structure of road signage as inspiration, artist Scott Froschauer's RELAX UR OK and ONE LOVE surprise and delight viewers by replacing the traditionally negative and coercive language with positivity and inspiration. As a reaction to surreal and unprecedented distanced-reality, Froschauer's words of hope, love, and affirmation stand in stark but positive relief, welcoming visitors and residents alike into one of the most inclusive cities in the world.
The City of West Hollywood installation was curated by long-time West Hollywood resident, Valda Lake, owner of the Wallspace gallery. RELAX UR OK and ONE LOVE is an 'Art on the Outside' project organized by the City of West Hollywood's Arts Division. The Art on the Outside program installs rotating temporary artworks on the City's medians and in parks.
More pictures can be seen at Square space: Scott Froschauer - West Hollywood Public Art, from October 2020
A full photo set of the installation is available on the City of West Hollywood’s official Flickr account.
