The City of West Hollywood through its Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission in collaboration with
LA><ART and L.A.P.D. present a public sculpture by Sam Falls, located at Plummer Park, 7737 Santa Monica Boulevard.
Sam Falls has produced his first public sculpture with LA><ART as part of the City of West Hollywood’s Art on the Outside Program. The work will be on view at Plummer Park on Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood. Falls’ public sculpture will be on view concurrently with a site-specific installation at LA><ART and a concurrent billboard on La Cienega Boulevard. Inspired by the history of minimalist sculpture, Sam Falls is invested in experimentation with process and materials, and in applying photographic operations to the realm of sculpture. Falls has created a post-minimalist UV powder coated aluminum sculpture whose paint will fade in the sunlight over time.
Sam Falls obtained his BA from Reed College and his MFA from the ICP-Bard program. His work has been shown recently in exhibitions at Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Zurich, Ribordy Contemporary, Geneva, Museo Madre, Naples, Nicole Klagsburn Gallery, New York, Michael Benevento, Los Angeles, and M+B Gallery, Los Angeles, among many others. Falls will present a solo exhibition at Balice Hertling, Paris in 2014. Falls lives and works in Los Angeles.
The City of West Hollywood’s Art on the Outside Program brings art out into the public realm to enhance the City’s pedestrian-friendly culture.
The City of West Hollywood prides itself on its support for arts throughout West Hollywood, and is pleased to include this project as part of WeHo East Arts (East Side Arts Initiative), a program of the City’s Arts and Cultural Affairs Commission to explore the convergence of culture, community and development on the City’s east side.
