The way the installation became a l . a . symbol
The main entrance to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art was through a hole in the postmodern fortress of the Art of the Americas Building on Wilshire Boulevard from the mid-eighties through the late aughts. In 2008, the museum launched a drastically reconfigured campus, created by designer Renzo Piano, that shifted the biggest market of gravity western up to a brand new pavilion and walkway spanning the campus from Sixth Street to Wilshire Boulevard.
