Art on the Outside
Catching another driver singing and dancing like a maniac. Catching someone picking their nose, talking on a headset you can’t see, playing the ukulele, blowing bubbles out the window, or scurrying to grab something from their trunk before a light turns green. When you’re stuck in traffic, you learn to appreciate the little things that make a ride tolerable.
The city of West Hollywood says, “Art on the Outside brings art out into the public realm from the traditional confines of gallery and museum settings to enhance the City’s lively pedestrian-friendly culture.” But let’s be serious, unless you’re taking a drunken late-night stumble out of the Troubadour it’s pretty unlikely you’ll find yourself standing in the middle of Santa Monica Boulevard where “Elemental,” an Art on the Outside sculpture exhibit, is on display.
Either way, it sure makes a slow commute more positive. Now, if only West Hollywood could evaporate all the other 39,000 daily passers-by of the Santa Monica Boulevard/Doheny Drive intersection!
