Public Company Information:
LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--This Fall, Charmin, Crest, Dawn and Pampers brands launch a public art project, in partnership with Higher Level Art and retailer Food 4 Less, that features artwork on the Metro Gold Line in Los Angeles. Telemundo52 Los Angeles (KVEA), Telemundo’s West Coast flagship television station, along with Outfront Media will also support the effort. Over the past month, artists and designers have worked to create artwork that highlights the importance of family, happiness and nature that will inspire and encourage Angelenos to rediscover their neighborhoods.
“As one of the busiest cities in the nation, we know Angelenos spend a good part of their day on the go, whether it’s commuting to and from home, school or work,” said Seunghee Ha, Brand Manager, NA Go-to-Market Innovation at Procter & Gamble. “P&G's public art project on the Metro Gold Line, which extends from East Los Angeles to Pasadena and back, spotlights the beauty and diversity of Los Angeles, turning the mundane task of commuting into something extraordinary. With the support of our partners, we are so proud to be able to celebrate this one-of-a-kind city.”
P&G brands partnered with Higher Level Art, a collective of artists creating exclusive murals, signs, and fine art installations around the world, to develop the 90 feet colorful murals that depict some of the brands’ iconic images. Higher Level Art is known for producing extensive creative works that draw from the wide variety of influences in popular culture.
“As artists we are always looking for ways to be inspired and inspire others. We are honored to have the opportunity to transform the Metro Gold Line to serve as visual entertainment to alleviate the stress of commuting,” said Matt Dayler at Higher Level Art. “We are hopeful that these bright colorful images will bring joy and smiles to Angelenos.”
Telemundo52 will support the Los Angeles project by offering new Spanish-language content that will extend until January 2015. The local television station is producing a video series in Spanish coined “Súbete con Telemundo52” (All aboard with Telemundo52) to cover the behind-the-scenes of the art project and Los Angeles attractions to visit off the Metro Gold Line.
