Overview

Hear from three artists whose work is featured in Project Los Altos. Chris Johanson, known for his deceptively simple paintings and works characterized by humor and vibrant color, created five site-specific sculptures for outdoor locations throughout downtown Los Altos. Mike Mills is the director of Thumbsucker and Beginners, and has created album covers for popular bands such as the Beastie Boys, Beck, and Sonic Youth. His new work for Project Los Altos, A Mind Forever Voyaging Through Strange Seas of Thought Alone: Silicon Valley Project, looks at the city's past, present, and future. Kateřina Šedá's commission, Everything Is Perfect, invited residents of Los Altos to submit their talents for a compilation of the ordinary and unique. Johanson, Mills, and Šedá will speak about their intimate and extensive exploration of social life in Los Altos, as well as many other projects.
