Saturday, September 4, 2010 This Odd Town

Art Guitar, Sunset Strip, Saturday, September 4, 2010

The twenty-six ten-foot-tall fiberglass Gibson Les Paul guitars currently on display on the Sunset Strip were previously covered here but they were at the clubs. The essence of this place is where the Sunset Strip where the action is blends into Beverly Hills where the unseen absurdly wealthy masters of all popular culture live in giant mansions behind locked gates. And at that end of Strip, at Luckman Plaza, you find the last of the last of the Art Guitars. It's a transition point.

And this Hollywood director stands in front of Luckman Plaza. It's "Going for Gold" by the Israeli sculptor Frank Meisler. It's a bit of an in-joke.
