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.
There were lots of creative people making tote bags out of used t-shirts. All the newly-created totes were filled with toiletries and donated to the Ocean Park Community Center.
Made from 100% recycled masonite or reclaimed plywood from construction sites. Panels come in two sizes 12"x24" and 24"x48". Multiple screen print colors will be available. The design is based on a series of railroad tracks that form an intricate pattern when tiled. Stay tuned for additional information...
