The Hall of Shadows - Amigo Studios Revisited
Project Area: North Hollywood
Project: NoHo Commons
Project Location: 11136 Chandler Boulevard
Project Type: Developer
With this project, artist Christina Ulke sought to highlight North Hollywood’s recording industry, whose ubiquitous existence in the area is often overshadowed by the more high profile movie and theatre arts industries. Brightly colored, graphic silhouettes inspired by 1960s and 1970s album covers from Amigo Studios, one of Los Angeles’ oldest recording studios formerly located near this site, are projected onto record shaped screens throughout the building’s garage structure. These projections serve to enliven the space, illuminate an important part of local history, and also serve as an orientation system for the parking structure users.
The Hall of Shadows was included in the Public Art in Review section of Art in America's 2008 Annual Guide (August 2008).
