Tasks / Curated Public Works

Create and place title cards with title, dates, and media descriptors near several public works projects (construction, street repair, utility servicing, etc.) Lead guided tours through your gallery. Describe lucidly the groundbreaking features of the work and speculate on the artists' intentions.

Maps, audio devices and headphones given to gallery patrons for self-guided tours are also acceptable but proof will require both a post of your narrative track and photos of your many patrons.

Heh, "groundbreaking"...

My initial response was the feeling that urbanites have a huge advantage for this task, but then it occurred to me that passing off the smaller public-works projects you might find in the suburbs or rural parts of the world are likely more at the whim of their surroundings, and more varied as a result. The economies of scale in public works here in LA make every construction site uniform, and frankly, boring.

Moreover, the regularity of construction makes them mundane and ignored by and large by the public, so while we have a greater need for the context-break this task affords, I greatly doubt the public of Los Angeles would receive the offer of a tour of construction sites nearly so well as someone for whom the "exhibits" would be more foreign and irregular sites.

this is a really complicated task for level 3!!
that would take a ton of set up and planning etc.
if properly done though this would be VERY entertaining though...
