Let There Be Lights

Tonight was the official lighting of the 202 vintage streetlights that make up Chris Burden’s “Urban Lights” sculpture (L.A. Times story here) in the courtyard at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. I wasn’t invited or nothing, just deviated from my normal bike route home from work to stop by and wait from the fringes until the switch was flipped and everyone went Oooooooo!

  1. Dag! I totally forgot last night was the lighting! I wasted my time in line at the closing Murakami show.

    I’m wondering if Chris Burden has mentioned anything about being inspired by LA’s first art installation using streetlamps at Vermont & Santa Monica?
