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.

Granite and water
10' h x 16" w

Culver City Singularity is a three-sided granite column water sculpture located near the western entry to Town Plaza. Water cascades down the column in a graceful, wave-like pattern, flowing into the triangular basin at the sculpture’s base.

The late Eric Orr was a local minimalist and conceptual artist who had completed several water sculptures for private and corporate collections. Mr. Orr was commissioned to create public art installations for the City of Los Angeles (L.A. Prime Matter, 1991) and the City of Beverly Hills (Untitled).
