The Daily News reported that this fall a driver ran into and knocked over part of the colorful sculptures on the east side of the 170 at Sherman Way.
The sculpture by Lars Hawke was initially installed in 1992, taken down in 2019 for restoration and reinstalled in 2021.
Refurbished and colorful once again, the sculptures made a splashy reappearance on Feb. 5, 2021, thanks to Los Angeles City Councilmember Paul Krekorian, state Assemblymember Luz Rivas, elected members of the North Hollywood North East Neighborhood Council, and the leaders of the artwork project, AT&T Pioneers-Pacific Chapter.
The president of AT&T Pioneers/Coastal Valley Council, Jeff Collins, is hoping to repair the damage with the driver’s insurance, but they don’t yet have any insurance information.
