The gallery has been highlighted in a new posting by the Forecast Editor in Public Art Review titled, “Elevating Artists: Why one gallery owner has a formal public art program.” The article focuses on Mark Moore’s long history of making public art an integral part of gallery programming.
The article begins:
“The distinction between “gallery art” and public art usually goes more or less unquestioned, but one veteran gallery owner is blurring the line between the two by running an active public art program out of his art space in Culver City, California.
Mark Moore moved his Mark Moore Gallery to the western Los Angeles community in 2011, after 17 years in Santa Monica and, before that, 10 years running the Works Gallery in Long Beach. “I got involved with artists doing work with light and space back then,” he says, “and I learned that public art was a tricky thing. My artists lost money on it.”
The experience suggested to him that he could help public artists get a better deal while at the same time promoting work that promotes his gallery. In Culver City, he helps any of the artists he represents who express an interest in doing public work.”
