"Median is the Message" courtesy Morley
FIELD NOTES: With local artists facing a late July deadlines for two different projects, the "Signature Public Art Project At Main/Commerce Intersection" and "Centered: Clark County Median Art", I kept thinking of this wheat-paste by Los Angeles based street artist Morley. I spoke to the artist about his prose in 2013 and wrote: "There is a message to his work. It's intimate, even encouraging. It's hopeful, yet not afraid to be sardonic-lite, even in a polite tone. It is not upstaged by the medium of urban space, where it works in tandem and where the artist feels it belongs."
