Michael Jang and Andrew Bush

Do Art created a FALL program with another round of unique art to be placed on bus benches around Downtown and Boyle Heights. This time, Los Angeles based photographers Andrew Bush and Michael Jang showcase their work in Council District 14 with eighteen installations. The exhibit is sponsored by the office of Jose Huizar and Martin Outdoor Media. Do Art's objective is to create conversations with people on the street about these portrait series, which carry intimate personal views of family, celebrity and those en route. The viewer holds the privileged role of voyeur, observing and surveilling the oftentimes unaware subjects in Andrew Bush's Vector Portrait series which captures travellers on the roadways of Los Angeles since 1989. The selection of Michael Jang's work is from his extended family portrait series 'The Jangs' that he shot while a student at CalArts in 1970 under the direction of Diane Arbus' teacher Lisette Model'. These pictures are far from your average family snapshots, or celebrity shots, in fact, they are filled with a sense of humor and expose the uniqueness of character. The unconventional exhibition 'Those who pass us by' aims to reach out to people on the streets of Los Angeles, and replace advertisements with an art series that is relevant to the site and demographic of the audience. This is a exhibition for Los Angelenos, by Los Angeles artists for Los Angeles residence. 'Those who pass us by' is designed to stop you for a moment on your daily route.
