Public Art in the Figueroa Corridor and Financial District

The Figueroa Corridor and Financial District is bordered by Pico Boulevard on the south side, and by First Street on the north side. It is an area of commercial buildings (many of which date back to the early part of the 20th century), and contemporary public works of art. This page describes public art works on Figueroa boulevard, Wells Fargo Center, California Plaza, YMCA, Los Angeles Public Library, Bunker Hill, and Pershing Square. East of this area is the Grand Hope Park. Do not reproduce information from this site without acknowledgement of the artists and their works, or of the authors of this site.
