Los Angeles: Great Expectations in Sculpture

Los Angeles is a city for first impressions. It’s a shallow mantra, but one that serves L.A. well, allowing it to be bombastic and superficial without shame. Subtlety may not be its strongest quality, but obviousness suits this city built on glaring sunshine, sprawling wealth, and artificially just fine. What you see is what you get: we dare you to find depth and meaning.
