HERE ARE OUR STAFF PICKS FOR THIS MONTH:
532 S. Olive St.,
Los Angeles, CA, 90013
Moiré Mandala, a newly commissioned large-scale public art sculpture by artist Mark Walsh is a diamond-shaped structure comprised of a black painted steel frame supporting a canopy of overlapping perforated aluminum plates that form an ever-changing moiré pattern. Opening at Pershing Square during the July 12th Downtown Art Walk, viewers can experience the artwork differently whether it is seen by day, when the shadows created are mesmerizing — or by night, when the effect is even more dramatic due to the gradually-changing multi-color interior lighting. Stepping up onto the wooden deck, admirers are treated to ambient sound created by musician friends of the artist.

«Color of Dreams»
