Go With The Flow is a group show currently on view at The Hole that explores the use of sprayed paint by 19 contemporary artists. Ranging from atomized paint traditionally used on automotives, to airbrush and aerosol, the show’s works come to life on walls covered in plastic sheeting that one can only assume were placed to mimic the environment where the art was created, and not for cleaning up a Patrick Bateman type slaughter. Go With The Flow runs through August 23, 2014.

While these new findings have yet to be validated by archaeologists, the other mysterious geoglyphs and lines in the desert have been thought to be everything from maps and advertisements for people coming off of the surrounding mountains to an alien airport with runways for UFOs.
