LA’s landmark Beverly Center, owned and operated by Taubman, has unveiled two massive art installations by Pae White, re-imaging the center’s iconic glass-enclosed escalators facing Beverly and La Cienega Boulevards.
These public art statements engage the streetscape and mall visitors alike, collectively becoming perhaps the largest public art installations of their kind in the city. Art includes:
Day for Night for Day – On Beverly Boulevard, White has created a sculpture composed entirely of light. Over 900 unique pieces of hand-shaped neon covers the five-story expanse of the wall, each piece keyed to the perceptual temperature in the daylight spectrum.
Moonsets for a Sunrise – For the east-facing La Cienega escalator, White has created a vast tile mural of moonlight. Using colors associated with four types of moons—harvest moon, strawberry moon, blue moon, and snow moon—the mural is composed of 73,635 pieces of tile glazed in over 100 colors.
