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.

Beehive by Eric Owen Moss, 1998

Steel, glass, Rhinezink, plaster, and aluminum
Rhinezink is a zinc metal alloy (with copper and titanium) designed to develop a zinc oxide patina over time.

32' h x 30' w x 37' d

Beehive is incorporated into a two-story office building and consists of four columns with a staircase wrapped around them. Mr. Moss's intention was to design a building that appears to be kinetic, yet in actuality is a stationary structure.

Eric Owen Moss is a Culver City based architect known for his conceptually challenging designs. Several of Mr. Mosses' buildings (or portions thereof), are designated under Culver City's Architecture as Art program. These include: Untitled (3535 Hayden Avenue) (1997), What Wall (1998), and Umbrella (1999).
