As part of the Pacific Standard Time Performace and Public Art festival this 58-foot steel tower has been erected along L.A.'s Sunset Strip on the vacant lot at Hilldale Avenue.
Artists' Tower of Protest sculpture by Mark di Suvero
Apparently it's a recreation of Mark di Suvero's Artists's Tower of Protest from 1966 when it was built at Sunset and La Cienega Boulevards as a symbol of protest against the Vietnam War.
I'm usually a huge fan of outdoor public art and I like the sentiment behind the re-staging, but personally I find this basic sculpture a bit amateurish and ugly.
But that's just my opinion and others may find it a thing of beauty, or at least admire its peace message (as I do).
