This was a photo from a long time ago. I would guess six years ago. I recalled it was across the street from LACMA (LA County Museum of Art). Behind the fence looked like an empty lot. It’s been six years so I’m sure something has filled that lot — maybe a restaurant or cafe? Maybe an apartment complex?
The letters appear to be made from a mix of media ranging from mylar balloons, felt, and pillows. Seeing this sign made me smile, it made me hopeful. It may not be there today, but I am glad to have captured it at that moment.
