Our Favorite Photos of Chris Burden’s Urban Light

2 Comments

Urban Light, artist Chris Burden’s collection of 202 cast-iron street lamps that welcomes visitors to Los Angeles County Museum of art, is his most iconic work. It’s also one of the city’s most photographed sites. We scoured the Internet (and even the personal albums of a few Los Angeles magazine staffers) to find these, the 32 coolest-looking, best-lit, and most moving images of the solar-powered landmark. Take a look:
