Taking cues from Parking Day’s theme, the iconic Hollywood sign, and the context in front of Local restaurant, LOCAL PARK is four large “topiary” letters that spell the word P-A-R-K. In combination with the existing storefront behind, the sign reads LOCAL PARK. Directed toward Sunset Blvd., the installation grabs the attention of the driving and bus-riding public and leaves the enigmatic impression of a green PARK at the side of the boulevard. Not in search of a fixed message, the sign might be read as a cheerful request to park your vehicle, and as an expression of the need for more green space in the city. The sign reverses the man-made vs. nature relationship of the Hollywood sign and turns the lettering into a landscape within the urban context. The letters are ballasted with sandboxes to create a temporary space for relaxing, expanding the space of the sidewalk.
