New Art Project Along Main and Los Angeles Streets Connects DTLA & Union Station & Demonstrates Need for Federal Artist Relocation Program
In order to make the walk from Union Station to Downtown Los Angeles more pleasant, the city is in the process of widening the sidewalks along Main and Los Angeles Streets where they cross the infamous 'Slot" where the freeway cuts off Downtown from Chinatown, the Plaza and Union Station. The City is also installing some 'art' along the sidewalks of Los Angeles and Main Streets. CURBEDLA has some details and a link to the city website describing the project.
No mention, however, is made in either place of the name of the artist who has, presumably, already been whisked away for their own safety and placed in the artist protection program prior to the installation of the art pieces.
