Project Area: North Hollywood
Project: NoHo Streetscape
Project Location: Lankershim Boulevard and Huston Street
Project Type: CRA Initiated
Angels stand alongside men and women, the unsung heroes, the backbone of the movie industry and the center of North Hollywood. The artist’s concept was to celebrate the area’s history of providing "behind the scenes" support to the entertainment industry. The Gateway depicts characters busily building sets, operating cameras, and designing costumes. Circles floating across the truss suggest champagne bubbles, musical notes on a bar, or balloons attached to a fence to announce a child’s party. Houses are elevated to show that this is about a sense of community, of home. In the center, a blue airport runway guiding light creates a connection to the airport and a sense of fantasy, direction, and security as one comes in for a happy landing in NoHo.
