Earlier this year, an artist planted in each dirt tower: black sage, California bush sunflower, deerweed, sticky monkeyflower, blue-eyed grass, California buttercup, and California poppy. It was supposed to all grow and flourish.
Guess this little art installation didn't really work out as everything looked dry and dead. This is how it looked back in May so I need to get back down there again and check it out.
From the artist's old website that is not online anymore..."Located at the Audubon Center at Debs Park, Monument to the Towers (Downtown/ Debs Park) is created from dirt, branches and plants found in the park can be seen as changing monuments, an abstract representation of downtown LA (which is visible from this site), or as a stand-ins for children (who often play in this area of the park)."
Better luck next time. Glad someone is at least trying their hand at natural art.
