Crossed CurrentsCulver City’s Art in Public Places Program was established by ordinance in 1988, with the view that cultural and artistic resources:

  • Enhance the quality of life for individuals living and working within a city; and,

  • Preserve and improve the quality of the urban environment, increase real property values, and have a positive economic impact.

By engaging the urban landscape, Culver City’s Art in Public Places Program brings the experience of art to a broad and diverse group of people. The goal of the program is to balance the community’s physical growth and revitalization with its cultural and artistic resources, resulting in improving the general welfare of the City, and increasing the availability of art to the public.

To date, there are over 100 individual artworks included in Culver City’s Art in Public Places Program. Approximately half are on private property and the other half on public (City) owned property.

Paul Tzanetopoulos' site-specific artwork (art designed for a specific location) is a celebration of Southern California's car culture. After Market Wheel is a wall installation that resembles an open window, containing computer-generated images of car culture icons, including three automobile wheels and the Pep Boy's iconic figures, "Manny, Moe, and Jack."

Paul Tzanetopoulos has completed public art commissions for the City of Los Angeles (Sidewalks in Time, 1995), and the LAX Gateway Pylon Project (Untitled, 2000), and the City of Manhattan Beach (Permanent Wave & Culture Wave, 1997).
