Monument Sign

57_web20_320x285_barnsdall_signThe Barnsdall Art Park Foundation has funded the construction of a landmark monument sign, which will be positioned at the Hollywood Boulevard entrance. It’s a long-awaited improvement to increase the Park’s visibility.

The iconic monument sign will reside at the foot of the Hill fronting Hollywood Boulevard to create greater visibility and integration with the surrounding neighborhood. Currently undergoing permit approvals, the project is set to break ground in 2011.

Other capital projects in development include the redesign of the Gallery Lobby, restoration of Residence A, the conversion of the Chauffeur’s Quarters and Motor Court into a cafe/bookstore, and the implementation of a glassblowing program.

Completed capital projects include development of the kilns for the Barnsdall Art Center, and funding of weekly free art classes at the Junior Art Center.
