Aside from the well manicured and generally clean environment of West Hollywood, the other thing that always really impresses me is the ever-changing collection of outdoor art lining the streets.
'Pretty Boy' sculpture by David Buckinghambold bronze and wood sculptures installed in July 2011.
My favourite of the bunch is this colourful patchwork metal piece caled 'Pretty Boy', which in my mind is a cross between a totem pole and with that chin, a 'Punch' puppet from a Punch and Judy show.
'Milestone' sculpture by Charles Arnoldi
'Sweet Meats' sculpture by Brad Howe
'Giggles' sculpture by Brad Howe
'Achenar' sculpture by Lila Albuquerque
'Standing Rose' sculpture by Michael Kalish
If you like these, be sure to also check out Peter Shire's geometric sculptures from 2009 which were on display in this same roadside park.
Overall these new sculptures are a welcome addition to the West Hollywood landscape and I hope it's a tradition that continues for many years to come...
