A six ton concrete sculpture will be on view to the public in West Hollywood Park from sunrise to sunset through November 2017 before disassembling into 40 individual sculpture pieces and then migrating throughout the city to be reinstalled in approximately 20 different public sites. Site locations and public programming will be announced throughout the exhibition to celebrate the sculpture’s migration.
