North Park's Art Produce Gallery has transformed their exhibition model throughout the pandemic, making more room for residencies for artists and even dance companies who need a place to develop, create and share art. Art Produce's storefront sits directly on University Avenue in North Park, with a large front window and glass doors to showcase works to passersby on the sidewalk.
Right now, the gallery window is home to current artist-in-residence Max Lofano's new, ephemeral work, "Ray." It's a series of sculptural lines that seem endless, spanning from their suction-cup attachments on the front window back to a vanishing point on the gallery's distant back wall.
Lofano worked with the gallery spotlights and intentionally created the work to be viewed from the sidewalk, at night.
