In celebration of the Breeders' Cup World Championships' return to Southern California, Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, along with Breeders' Cup officials, California Horse Racing Board chairman Keith Brackpool, and Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, will unveil a 3D painting at a press conference at LA Live Oct. 25.
The interactive, 3D art installation, "BCin3D," will be on display at LA Live through Nov. 1, when it will be moved to Santa Anita Park for the World Championships Nov. 2-3.
The Breeders' Cup commissioned world-renowned artist, Kurt Wenner, inventor of 3D street art, to create the painting that depicts a scene from Santa Anita. The painting will be staffed throughout the week with Breeders' Cup brand ambassadors, encouraging fans to "step into" the painting.
The press conference will take place at 1 p.m. PDT. It will serve as the official welcoming of the Breeders' Cup back to Los Angeles, kicking off festivities surrounding the World Championships.
