Los Angeles Developer Funds Unique Public Art Project In New Residential and Retail Property
Otis College of Art and Design in cooperation with Decron Properties Presents Another LA is Possible in Playa del Rey

LOS ANGELES, CA (November 2, 2009) - Los Angeles residents in the LAX and beach cities environs will have the opportunity to experience - while shopping, dining, working, studying and even at home – an art exhibition that re-envisions the very city they live in. Another LA is Possible, a temporary, two-part exhibition, will open this November in the new mixed-use development, Playa del Oro, at Lincoln Blvd and Manchester in Playa del Rey. The public art project, funded by Decron Properties, was conceived and implemented by students and faculty of the Fine Art Department at Otis College of Art and Design. (This project is part of the arts development fee program administrated by the Department of Cultural Affairs, City of Los Angeles.)

The exhibition of sculpture, drawings, film and photography, as well as art events, will be installed in and around glass-front cabinets that are part of Playa del Oro’s original architecture. Playa del Oro is the first multi-use property in a commercial zone permitted by the city of Los Angeles in the Westchester/Playa del Rey neighborhood. Built in 2009 at the gateway to Playa del Rey, the upscale center is a multi-family residential, retail and restaurant development, one mile from the beach and two blocks from the main campus of Otis College of Art and Design. “Playa del Oro is ultimately a neighborhood center, where we’ve strategically picked the retail shops and restaurants, such as Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, to suit this particular community,” said David J. Nagel, ceo and president of Decron Properties. “Otis College, which anchors Loyola Village, is an important neighbor, so we chose to support the art and design school by showcasing student and faculty artwork along Playa del Oro’s pedestrian walkways.”

Another LA is Possible will be exhibited in two parts – “a call and then a response”, says artist and Otis faculty member Robby Herbst, who is curating this project. Part 1 features the work of LA-based artists, architects and urbanists whose work re-imagines another way that Angelenos can live together. Part 2 presents the work of Otis Fine Art students who are responding to the vision and approaches of the first show.
