At LAND, some exhibitions of note include Jose Davila: Sense of Place (2017- 2018), a city-wide sculptural exhibition initiated as part of Pacific Standard Time LA/LA; and The Manifest Destiny Billboard Project (2013- 2015), a series of artist-produced billboards and activations that unfolded along Interstate 10 Freeway from Florida to California.
