A handful of billboards in Los Angeles will be getting a makeover courtesy of 23 different artists. The MAK Center for Art and Architecture is organizing the public art exhibit, which will run next year from February 5 through March 26. An overview exhibit, interactive media and a guided bus tour will help bring the project to life.

The MAK Center explains:

Twenty-three artists working in the vein of California’s conceptual art movement have each been commissioned to create a new work that critically responds to the medium of the billboard and interprets its role in the urban landscape. Investigating art as an idea as well as art as a media for critical intervention, the exhibition highlights the interaction of Pop, conceptualism and architecture in Los Angeles since the late 1960s.
