Los Angeles - April 2008- Scion’s Installation 4, “It’s A Beautiful World,” will open in
Los Angeles, the last of nine cities on the national tour, on May 10. The innovative Scion
Installation Art Tour launched its fourth installment last July and features a diverse array of
artists from around the world. The theme, “It’s a Beautiful World,” was interpreted by each
artist, in one of four mediums— painting, photography, sculpture, and collage. The culmination
of the tour is accompanied by a live auction where all of the artwork will be auctioned off to
the public, and 100 percent of the proceeds will go toward art related charities. In previous
years, the auctions have raised more than $110,000 for charity.
This year's artists include: Andrew Pommier, Andy Mueller, Angela Boatwright, Blaine
Fontana, Blek LeRat, Books III, Caia Koopman, Chris Yormick, Cody Hudson, Dalek,
David Choe, Eye One, Francesco LoCastro, Freddi C, J. Shea, James Jean, Jeff Soto,
Joshua Krause, Kelsey Brookes, Kenton Parker, Kofie, Mel Kadel, Michael Sieben,
Mike Giant, Rammellzee, RETNA, R. Grimes, Ron English, Sam Flores, Sage Vaughn,
Skwerm, Tim McCormick, Travis Millard, and The London Police.
The final tour stop and auction will be held in Los Angeles, at the Scion Installation L.A.
space in the Culver City Arts District May 10 - June 1, 2008. Most all of the Installation 4
artists will attend the opening night of the show on May 10. The opening reception will take
