On Thursday, May 14th 2015 Art Share L.A. will host a cocktail reception gala event to raise money to fund their mission of supporting emerging artists by providing a creative arts center in rapidly growing Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles. Honoree Kent Twitchell is providing 8 images from his 40-year career and 2 never-before-seen images to be displayed on a network of billboards to create a public art exhibition throughout Los Angeles provided by Clear Channel Outdoor.

Kent Twitchell has been creating murals in Los Angeles since 1971 when he created a 30’ tall image of Steve McQueen. Images included in this project include the famous mural portrait “The Hollywood Freeway Lady”, “LA Chamber Orchestra”, “LA Marathon Runners”, “Lita Albuquerque Monument” and never before displayed “Michael Jackson Monument” and the soon to be painted “The Return on Ed Ruscha”. All featured images will be on display and for purchase at Above the Streets gala event.

Above the Streets will be an evening of celebration from 6:00 – 10:00PM. Art Share’s creative center will be fully activated with a silent auction highlighting emerging artists works, passed food and cocktails provided by Traxx Restaurant, and a program presenting Kent Twitchell with the Esteemed Artists Award by Isabel Rojas-Williams of the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles (MCLA).

Confirmed Billboard Locations Include:

· Venice @ Motor

· La Cienega @ Jefferson

· Wilshire @ Western

· La Cienega @ Horner

· Cotner @ Pico

· La Cienega @ Airdrome
