2) #BLPLA Artschwager Contest presented by the Hammer Museum

One of our favorite Los Angeles museums, The Hammer, has a sort of Artschwager treasure hunt with blps!


  Two-night stay at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas, a one-year membership with LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division), and a Richard Artschwager catalogue and tote. 

Enter to win one of three prize packages simply Instagram or Tweet your own photo of a blp with #blpla or #blplv in the text or caption.  The first winner will be announced Tuesday, August 27, 2013, the second Tuesday, September 10, 2013, and the grand prize winner will be announced Tuesday, September 24, 2013.

In conjunction with the retrospective Richard Artschwager! on view at the Hammer Museum through September 1, 2013 LAND (Los Angeles Nomadic Division) and the Hammer Museum present a citywide installation of Richard Artschwager’s blps—a word coined by the artist (pronounced “blips”) in the late 1960s which consists of black lozenge-shaped marks meant to inspire focused looking and draw our attention to the places and things around us that often go unnoticed. LAND’s Director and Curator, Shamim M. Momin, selected a number of sites throughout Los Angeles to place the blps. A selection of blps is also located on the property of The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.  Download the L.A. Blp Map to discover blps in neighborhoods around L.A.
