Lobby Artwork for MLK Outpatient Center Installs

DSC_9214.jpg

Over the last several months I have been project managing the fabrication and installation of the lobby artwork for the new Martin Luther King Jr. Medical Outpatient Center in Los Angeles. The artwork was created by Dominique Moody, an assemblage artist who recently completed an artist-in-residence at the Watts Towers Arts Center and is now an artist-in-residence at Zorthian Ranch.  After months of fabricating, Standard Sculpture was ready to install the artwork this past week. Here are some photos of them maneuvering around a very tight space as they installed the work. The new hospital will celebrate its official opening in April 2014.

GriffinMade has an Etsy Shop

While some items appear on both websites, the GriffinMade Etsy shop features very limited runs like the "STRIPES ONLY" collection. This collection is made up of striped scarves sewn as giant tubes. The scarves can be worn several different ways depending on your preference. They are all made from remnant fabric and come with a set of rubber rings which are by-products of skateboard wheel manufacturing. Hop over and take a look.
