A few of us recently decided to to take advantage of a warm and clear Friday afternoon to explore the city and visit one of our local parks. As many Angelenos have noticed, heard about, or seen via Instagram, MacArthur Park has been recently been transformed into one giant public art exhibition.
Wendy Chan, one of my fellow colleagues at AHBE, initiated our little afternoon sojourn. The following images below are a visual journal of what we saw and experienced at the park last week when we escaped from our computer screens for a few hours.
Organized by the L.A.-based arts nonprofit Portraits of Hope the manmade lake now holds about 2,500 colorful hand painted floating spheres, a display I think that’s well worth the time and travel to experience in person. For more information about The Spheres at MacArthur Park installation and the great story behind it, check out the FAQs and background website.
