Jennifer Steinkamp
Hollywood and Vine
8 LED columns
2009


Project Area:  Hollywood
Project:  1600 Vine
Project Location:  1600 N. Vine Street
Project Type:  Developer Initiated

Description:

Hollywood and Vine is a series of eight animations created by artist Jennifer Steinkamp. Each animation references a specific star on a block of the Vine section of the Walk of Fame in front of this development – Orson Wells, Cary Grant, Donna Reed, Jane Wyman, Ray Millard, Margaret O’Brien, William Bendix, and Audrey Hepburn. For each star, Steinkamp selected a classic film that showcases flowers in some manner. The variety of flowers that appear in the respective films were then digitally modeled and assembled into each of the animations you see here. This series pays tribute to the great actors memorialized here as well as Hollywood’s talented Art Directors and Set Decorators.
