WehoEastLogoStarted in 2013, WeHo East Arts is an initiative of the City of West Hollywood to bring additional Arts programs to the Eastside of West Hollywood. This archives some of the projects on display between 2013-2015, but additional events can be found in our calendar.

There's a flurry of development happening on the east side of West Hollywood and the arts are flourishing too. Plummer Park is our unofficial center for arts in WeHo East playing host to several new sculptures in the park through the City's Art on the Outside Program as well as events as part of the City’s Summer Sounds Concert Series, Free Theatre in the Park, One City One Pride Arts Festival and Resident Company program.

WeHo East Arts is an initiative of the City’s Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission to explore the convergence of culture, community and development on the City’s east side.

Influenced by naturally occurring shapes, artists Lisa Little and Emily White explore unexpected structural possibilities. By using aluminum, the artist team is able to take advantage of the material’s lightweight strength to create a large open lattice made from just a tiny amount of raw material. As a matter of fact, the entire recyclable material of this nearly 30-foot sculpture can be condensed into a 2-foot cube. Deinstalled in July 2015.
