The Annenberg Space for Photography presents “Not an Ostrich: And Other Images from America’s Library”, a large selection of rare and handpicked works from vaults of the World’s largest library, many never widely available to the public. This exhibition spans across the history of photography—from daguerreotypes, the first photographic process, to contemporary digital prints. Iconic portraits of Abraham Lincoln, John Lennon and Elizabeth Taylor appear alongside unusual images, such as, Stanley Kubrick’s “Strong Man’s Family” (1947), John Vachon’s “Ice Fishing, Minnesota” (1956), and Nina Berman’s “Flammable Faucet #4, Monroeton, PA” (2011). Vivid color portrayals of America are highlighted in juxtapositions of popular travel views from the late 19th century on a screen next to striking contemporary scenes. A documentary film produced by the Annenberg Foundation featuring interviews with exhibit photographers, historians, authors, political figures, and civil rights leaders, is also on view. “Not an Ostrich: And Other Images from America’s Library” invites visitors to experience America’s shared heritage. GOLD METROPOLITAN MEDIA is honored to work with the Annenberg Space for Photography to produce and install City Light Pole Banners for the exhibit.
The Sunset Strip has been a world-famous destination for excitement, expression, and escapism for nearly a hundred years. Stretching 1.6 miles connecting Beverly Hills and Hollywood, The Strip has in many ways been a launching platform for pop-culture. To preserve the unique and notorious brand for which The Strip is known, an association of businesses created the Sunset Strip Business Association (SSBA). Today, the Sunset Strip Business Improvement District is dedicated to the partnerships, programming, and civic resources to businesses that are keeping the culture alive for the next hundred years. GOLD METROPOLITAN MEDIA is honored to work with the Sunset Strip Business Improvement District to created beautiful banners that line the Sunset Strip.
Art + Practice presents “Maren Hassinger’s The Spirit of Things”, an exhibition with sculpture, performance documentation, and videos that explore the emotional dynamics of relationships amongst different communities of people, and between them and the environments in which they live. For over four decades, Maren Hassinger has explored relationships between the industrial and natural worlds in a practice that is both meditative and critical. Since the 1970s, her sculpture has incorporated common materials associated with manufacturing, mass media, and commerce. GOLD METROPOLITAN MEDIA is excited to work with Art + Practice to promote the exhibit using City Light Pole Banners.
