Los Angeles commuters are getting an on-the-house arts education for the month of December. The Billboard Creative (TBC) filled the city’s ubiquitous roadside advertisements together with the help of nearly 50 artists.
Now, instead of absorbing the messaging of budget beer brands and insurance companies, LA car owners can appreciate art history in the making with the works of artists such as Paul McCarthy and Alex Prager. Both locals to the city, McCarthy and Prager use their elevated works to reflect LA’s cultural milieu back to its inhabitants. McCarthy’s contribution is a comical caricature of women in the Wild West, an allusion to the industry that drives the city. Prager takes a more realistic though voyeuristic look at the cultural underbelly of LA with a fitting scene of the morning commute (above).
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
