Light at the Opening

Mixed Media, February 2020
Original. 24 x 32″

I attended the LA Art Show and was captivated by the mesmerizing light at the entrance of the convention center. It intrigued me to learn that this same location had served as “the spaceport” in the movie Starship Troopers. Upon further investigation, I discovered that the architect behind the LA Convention Center, Charles Luckman, considered himself more of a businessman than an architect due to his keen interest in understanding human motivation. It is fascinating how someone who was once the president of the Pepsodent Toothpaste company (1944) could also become a renowned architect.

In this image, my intention was to blend the radiant sunlight of Los Angeles with the luminous white walls inside the convention center. I wanted to visually merge the vibrant downtown art scene with this iconic symbol of American entertainment. It is worth mentioning that Luckman and Associates were also responsible for designing notable structures such as Madison Square Garden (1971), the Johnson Space Center (1968), and The Forum (1967) in Inglewood, CA.
