So, we finished our second year. Wow. We seriously could not have asked for a better ending. Susan Sironi brought us her hypnotizing vision of history, all cut up, manipulated, pasted, painted, piled and ultimately beautiful. It's truly a wonderful work and we were delighted you all saw it. The day was perfectly breezy and the traffic island was buzzing.
We love that you all came out and we are so grateful to all our fans and supporters. It's a been another rewarding year in the company of truly great artists. We've said it many times, we simply could not have done this without you:
John McGuire Olsen
Michelle Carla Handel
Huge thank you to the spaces, businesses and organizations who allowed us to take over for the three hours, to the writers who wrote about us and to those great people who pass by and tell us what they think of the project.
We have lots planned for next season. Can't wait to see you all again and in the meantime, check us out on Facebook for updates and summer treats.
Much love, Sophia & Paul

Susan Sironi: Rote History
Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 4-7pm
Los Feliz Triangle Park
Hollywood Blvd. & Prospect Ave. at Vermont Ave., Los Angeles, CA 90027
ShoeboxLA is pleased to present Susan Sironi: Rote History. For Rote History, Sironi examines ways in which history is stored, how it can be manipulated and, ultimately, rendered useless. By cutting copies of a popular history magazine into small, unidentifiable pieces, she makes the periodical unreadable. The work, in a distorted state, is physically in front of you but its original purpose is now obliterated while a new completely visual work is reborn. Susan Sironi received her BFA from California State University Long Beach, Long Beach, CA. She lives and works in Pasadena, CA.
We are very pleased to be back where we started our exciting second year at the Los Feliz Triangle Park! Join us amidst LA traffic in wonderful Los Feliz as we celebrate Susan Sironi and a great year of work by amazing artists.
