News and Online Community for Culver City - The New Scene
Tony Tasset's Rainbow -- nine stories tall and spanning 188 feet -- is currently being installed on the Sony Pictures lot. The piece was created from welded steel, clad with aluminum panels, and finished with resin-based paint in, well, every color of the rainbow. The installation process is expected to take about 8 weeks.
How do we feel about it, now that it's going in? It is bit more difficult to see than I hoped.... The best view is on Culver Blvd., looking north.
According to the artist's description of his sculpture, it is intended to speak to "the sense of optimism and well-being associated with rainbows in general and more specifically with the rainbow in popular culture as imagined in the iconic Wizard of Oz film, created in the very movie studio that will become home to the Rainbow sculpture.”
