Celebrating the 10th anniversary, Chris Burden's public art work "Urban Light" outside Los Angeles County Museum of Art remains a destination well loved by its citizens and visitors.
With a birthday gift from Leonardo DiCaprio Flundation, the 202 astronomically timed, solar-powered 1920s, 1930s lamps (with 309 bulbs) are now replaced with LEDs that give same light, intensity, colour and tone as the original incandescent light bulbs gave.
Also, glad to know this public art will be kept with LACMA's new building designed by Peter Zumthor opening in 2023. #publicart#urbanlight (official) #chrisburden#LACMA
Wonderful night at the season premiere of @anchoragesymphony , despite missing my former seat mate and partner in symphonic crime, my mom, who now lives thousands of miles away. Hats off to Daniel Hsu (again). Aaaamazing pianist. What a lovely night.
So if you didnt know already, I got some vapor pop the last time cleared the 35" Monarch butterfly. I've tried a couple ways to fix it but in the end I just had to sand the bubbles completely out down t ok metal and go from there. If you feel like seeing this repair you can scroll through the next 10 pics/videos. I'll be adding a little more detail in the morning before adding some gloss. #10 shows were I'm at now.
