Through The Flowers is an immersive installation by Los Angeles based artist Laurie Shapiro. Using drawn screen prints and layers of painting on transparent vinyl, the artist creates a semi-enclosed outdoor environment for San Luis Obispo’s Mission Plaza. With both sides of the artwork rich in layers of color and paint, as well as a custom-lit interior, the artist encourages visitors to enjoy a playful and imaginative experience where we can to look and interact with each other “through the flowers.”
This project was made possible in a partnership with the city of San Luis Obispo and the San Luis Obispo Museum of Art.
Through The Flowers was featured on KSBY TV news.
A limited edition of 25 screenprints on transparent vinyl are available for purchase through SLOMA’s online store. A portion of proceeds benefit SLOMA’s programs.
