LA-based BOA Events announces show dates for Rise&Fall, an art and music event series that commemorates the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. This national mobile art installation and electronic music event will feature artwork that interprets the theme “Breaking Down Barriers.” All artwork will be displayed on Kodak S730 and D830 digital picture frames that will showcase the multiple entries that were received during the open call for submissions. The nightlife event will also include music performed by renowned Turkish-German DJ/Producer, DJ Ipek Ipekcioglu.
“During our open call for submissions, we received artwork from 19 countries and 19 states within the United States. Submissions were requested in digital form to be displayed on Kodak digital picture frames throughout the venues because it allows us to showcase creative representations of the broader theme of breaking down barriers to a demographic in venues and volume we otherwise could not,” added Mikaela Pollock, co-director of BOA.
