WeHo Gets Happy With New Art Installation
The stretch of Santa Monica Blvd. between Doheny Drive and Almont Drive is regularly strewn with art, displayed in the grassy median that separates the traffic going east and west. Now, the city of West Hollywood will play host to seven sculptures along the same few city blocks, as part of an agreement between the city and non-profit organization The Sculpture Foundation. Featured works will include a cast bronze piece by artist Andrew Rogers, a steel piece by Emilie Benes Brzezinski, and a cast and fabricated bronze work by Herk Van Tongeren.
The work is slated to go up tomorrow, according to the city's website, and will stay put through June of 2012.
