"Film Strip - U.S.A", Culver City, California, USA

Located outside the Veterans Memorial Complex in Culver City (corner of Overland and Culver), this public art by Natalie Krol is titled "Filmstrip - U.S.A". Acknowledging Culver City as the "Heart of Screenland", this stainless steel structure was dedicated in 1981 and features three intertwined film strips. Throughout the night, the water continues to flow and the lights are lit to illuminate the reflections of the film strips into the pool of emerald green water. I've passed it so many times going to meetings for work, and guessed that by night, it would look even cooler...and I was right!

Hi Victoria,
You'll be glad to learn this sculpture was done by an L.A. woman, Natalie Krol, as a commission to partly commemorate Culver City as the Capital of the film industry. Sony Pictures now occupies the Old MGM Studios across the street. Natalie is still living and is celebrating her 90th birthday this year and still doing art. Nice Photo. (I was one of the workers on the sculpture.)
