It Looks Like The Return Of The 'Glassellland' Sign Could Be Short-Lived
A mysterious 10-foot-high Glassellland sign that resembled the white block lettering of the iconic Hollywood sign popped up on a hillside in Glassell Park last year, and then got torn down in November. However, some of the letters have made it back up over the past week, but it looks like this art project might get taken down again.
Chuck Weiss posted this Instagram photo last night showing some letters of the sign, namely the "-ellland" part installed on a hill. He captioned it, "Got a lot closer ... Until the city shut us down," and added, "Yeah we were installing a few more letters this morning when the Building & Safety boys showed up and told us we have 48 hours to bring it down."
Some Glassell Park residents were stoked about it going up. One person Instagrammed "The #GlassellLand sign is going up and I'm really happy about it!":
In March, the artist behind the sign, who goes by Justin, raised $3,752 (much more than his $500 goal) on an Indiegogo campaign, to bring back the sign, according to LA Weekly.
Who knows if this will be the end of the Glassellland sign though? It could very well get moved again somewhere else. Curbed LA reported that the sign had moved from above Verdugo Avenue in March to above Kinney Street in April.
