On December 13, 2012 LAB ART, the Nation’s largest art gallery dedicated to Street Art, proudly presents “AMERICANA”, the premier solo exhibit of celebrated Los Angeles street artist Random Act a.k.a. Andrea LaHue, after her unprecedented cross country expeditions of social activism. “AMERICANA” is a timely, relevant visual passage criss-crossing a deeply layered America. This exposition is inspired by LaHue’s journeys across a changed “United States”, in the midst of a war and recession and her experience of painting enormous flowers on buildings in 51 cities “from sea to shining sea”.  

In “AMERICANA” Random Act illuminates resonant themes of the American psyche.  Random Act takes the audience on a dynamic journey through iconic images such as Abraham Lincoln, Gil Scott-Heron and Woody Guthrie. Including their writing, relevant maps, icons and images from her journey, LaHue skillfully creates an entirely unique style that flows through the entire exhibition.

“I wanted to crash together the American experience, dream and psyche and liberate it.”
 - Random Act aka Andrea LaHue

Deepening the experience and reflecting the cooperation within a vibrant culture, “AMERICANA” also features Random Act collaborations with artists such as Bryan Snyder and Lydia Emily.

Punctuating the evening, actors Kevin Will and Will Dixon will perform The Gettysburg Address written by Abraham Lincoln and The Revolution Will Not Be Televised written by Gil Scott-Heron, at 8pm and 9pm, respectively.

The opening event will feature  “Americana” inspired DJ sets from Buzz Can’t DJ and DJ TY.  

Random Act is widely recognized for monumental botanical paintings and her extraordinary journeys to “uplift, beautify and inspire” main streets across America. The exhibit is a stylistic evolution - a deeper exploration of American iconography layered in paint, portraiture and transfers. Her innovative blend of fine art and street art celebrates American ingenuity and redemption. “AMERICANA” presents the first opportunity to see Random Act’s timely visual reflections assembled together in one exhibit.

LAB ART presents Random Act aka Andrea LaHue “AMERICANA” running December 13th through January 13, 2013 with preview dates December 12 -13, 2012.  The opening night reception, open to the public with RSVP’s, will be on December 13, 2012 from 7pm – 10 pm.
