6. Untitled (Human History) by Barbara Kruger in collaboration with the Los Angeles Fund for Public Education and ForYourArt, 2012

Any billboard that announces catastrophe is designed to grab one's attention, and while sitting in everyday traffic on another 72º day in Los Angeles, Barbara Kruger reminds us of the crisis in the midst of all Americans: "SUPPORT PUBLIC EDUCATION OR FACE CATASTROPHE." Kruger's opportunity inspired the excitement of thousands of Angelenos, who see the billboards and buses on their daily commute, and the campaign becomes an inescapable interrogation.
