Thursday, February 25, 2010 End on Sunset

New on Sunset Boulevard, at Vista, part of "How Many Billboards: Art In Stead" a large-scale urban art show by the MAK Center for Art and Architecture at the Schindler House "Art should occupy a visible position in the cacophony of mediated images in the city, and it should do so without merely adding to the visual noise." So the idea is "that art periodically displace advertisement in the urban environment." And this is one of the twenty-one billboards in the area, up through March. This one, The End, from Jennifer Bornstein, is for Hollywood, having to do with the end of film, and perhaps the end of Hollywood, in the digital age. It sits directly above the West Hollywood Presbyterian Church and adds a nice apocalyptic touch to the neighborhood.
