Adrian Glick Kudler Reviews Bettina Hubby’s Dig the Dig 5.7.13

Bettina Hubby, the Silver Lake artist who threw a party at the never-ending LADWP construction site on Rowena Avenue, has taken her good attitude to Santa Monica, where she’s dressing up the Expo Line station construction at Olympic and Twenty-Sixth Street (with the help of the nearby Santa Monica Museum of Art; this is also right near the Bergamot Station Art Center). Dig the Dig includes orange safety cones modified to hold weekly flower deliveries, “large-scale, manipulated photographs of the Olympic/26th Street site on large banners along the construction fencing,” and, on July 21, “a candle-lit and disco-ball activated Dig the Dig Dinner, which will bring together construction workers, local business owners, and neighbors for a festive meal, music, and performances by local artists.” Herb Alpert also put up some art in the area recently.
