Statues, sculptures, graffitti, fountains etc etc

Here is some of Boston's: Most of it is old school...very few modern additions.

Art from public spaces around Los Angeles:

Exposition Park Fountain


Los Angeles Music Center Plaza


The Watts Towers




"The Spirit of Los Angeles"


"Memory of the Fallen" of the Los Angeles Fire Department. There are far too many names under that arch for a young city like L.A., most victim to the horrendous brush fires in the hills in and around the city.




Strange and different sculpture downtown, built out of destroyed airplanes.


Venice Beach Graffiti Tower

Those are all nice...

I love the grove...it's a really well designed space....

Is the observatory the one from 'Rebel Without a Cause'?
