One of the many things I love about West Hollywood is the abundance of ever changing public art around the city's streets.
Wave Hill sculpture by Robert Ressler (2000)
The large new sculptures to be found along Santa Monica Boulevard on the grassy median just before Doheny Drive are no exception and a welcome addition after hosting Peter Shire's colourful geometric sculptures most recently.
Flora Exemplar sculpture by Andrew Rogers (2006)
There's nothing like a big, bold bronze (or welded painted steel in the case of Lintel) to make a statement and luckily these newly installed pieces really do make this part of West Hollywood more interesting.
Between Essence and Existence by Bruce Lindsay (1992)
Lintel sculpture by Emilie Benes Brzezinski (1993)
These really are my kind of sculptures and remind me of the outdoor sculptures at The Getty Center.
Bucci sculpture by Peter Voulkos (2001)
Matters of the Moment sculpture by Mike Gyampo (1996)
Apparently these sculptures will take temporary residency in this location from now until June 2012.
Teatro XVIII sculpture by Herk Van Tongeren (1981)
You can find out more about these outdoor sculpture exhibit at West Hollywood's official website.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I shall enjoy passing by these sculptures in the coming months...
