Parallel Perpendicular: Art and Public Space

Sunday, August 7, 2022 - 1:00pm - 3:00pm

In support of Phillip K. Smith III: Shared Light, the Great Park Gallery presents a panel discussion on the function of public art in shared spaces. Completed in the Spring of 2022 in the city of West Hollywood, world-renowned artist Phillip K. Smith III’s latest public art project Parallel Perpendicular was erected. By day, the sculpture’s forms reflect the park visitors and environment as well as the surrounding West Hollywood views. By night, the mirrored surfaces become pure fields of color that slowly move through the color spectrum. Join Phillip K. Smith III and the City of West Hollywood’s Public Art Administrator Rebecca Ehemann for a discussion on the processes and functions of art in public spaces. This event is free and open to the public; no advance registration is needed.
