The “Three Horned Beast and Baby Beast,” powder coated aluminum sculpture by the art and architecture duo Lisa Little and Emily White, will be unveiled at Plummer Park on Saturday.
The unveiling ceremony, which runs from 10 a.m. to noon will reveal to the public the latest projects of the city’s Art on the Outside program and WeHo East Arts program, whose goal is to bring more art to the city’s east side.
The “Beast and the Baby Beast” sculpture is made of aluminum, a strong yet lightweight metal used to shape a large open lattice almost 30 feet hight whose raw material can be condensed into a two-foot square cube.
Little and White are partners in Layer, an architecture firm based in Venice.
White holds a Master of Architecture degree from the Southern California Institute of Architecture and a Bachelor of Arts from Barnard College. She has lectured and published on topics ranging from manufactured islands to the history of code in fibrous architecture. Her work has been exhibited in numerous museums and galleries. She has taught design studios at the University of Southern California, the University of California at Berkeley and Woodbury University.
Little holds a Master of Architecture from the Southern California Institute of Architecture and a Bachelor of Science in electrical engineering from Georgia Institute of Technology. Little worked as an associate at Patrick Tighe Architecture for three years. Prior to that she was a designer in the office of Pugh + Scarpa Architects. At these firms she worked on retail, affordable housing, single family residential and commercial projects. Previously, she was the director of the Flame and Inferno software development team at software developer Discreet Logic and a hardware design engineer at Abekas Video Systems developing hardware systems for film and television post production.
Saturday’s event also will highlight the Sam Falls sculpture on the plinth in front of the Plummer Park Community Center as well as the “Find Your Roots” pop up art exhibit across the street from Plummer Park at 7362 Santa Monica Blvd. The event will feature music and pastries from area bakeries.
