Scion's Fourth National Art Tour
- Words: Jennifer Marston
The fourth installment of Scion's National Art Tour is already underway, moving pieces from artists based all over the world to cities across the US.
This year, Andrew Pommier, Andy Mueller, Cody Hudson, Dalek, Sam Flores, Kelsey Brookes, Mike Giant, and plenty others will tackle the installation's theme, "It's a Beautiful World," through painting, photography, sculpture, and collage–with intriguing results. Interpretations range in subject matter from beat-up cars to birdhouses.
The exhibition series–which began in 2003 as a means of showing Scion's commitment to independent art–will stop in nine cities this year, beginning with Boston. The Miami installment coincides with the city's Art Basel show (North America's largest art event), and the Los Angeles edition will take place at the new Scion Installation L.A. space, where all artwork will be auctioned off and proceeds given to charity.
