Past Artist In Residence
In 1999, the Canadian artist, Mark Verabioff, returned to Los Angeles to perform the second chapter of his guerilla art project called “dartmissions” in conjunction with 18th Street Arts Center. This project consisted of a site-specific series of guerrilla actions that are composed of installed interactive dartboards in Santa Monica, Hollywood and Silver Lake. The boards are constructed of brightly colored vinyl custom signage that is applied directly onto the wall surfaces of buildings, signposts, bathrooms, and hallways where pedestrian traffic occurs. The content of the phrases Verabioff coins are ambiguous yet intentionally provocative. Verabioff currently works and lives in Northern California.
