Kenny Schneider
Action
1994


Project Area: Hollywood
Project: Action Artwork Relocation
Project Location: 1602 N. Ivar Ave., Triangle Square Apartments
Project Type: CRA/LA Initiated

Description:

Action was originally a kinetic installation of four metal whirligigs that were situated atop metal tripod bases and displayed in an outdoor parking lot in the NoHo Arts District .

In 2007, due to excessive wear and tear over time and to prevent further deterioration, the CRA/LA received permission from the artist to remove the four whirligigs from their bases and modify them for indoor exhibition.  As each whirligig represents a scene from a classic movie, it was considered most appropriate to re-locate these pieces to the heart of Hollywood.  Action is now on display at the Gay and Lesbian Elder Housing Community Room in the Triangle Square building where it is accessible to the public.
