The Artists’ Tower of Protest was erected in 1966 on a lot on Sunset and La Cienega Blvds. as a symbol of collective dissent against the Vietnam War. It was conceived by the Los Angeles Artists’ Protest Committee, designed by sculptor Mark di Suvero, and was surrounded by hundreds of artist-designed panels. The Artists’ Tower of Protest will be re-staged to reflect on this important historical moment in Los Angeles and to open a dialogue about the role of arts activism today. Curated by Cesar Garcia, LA><ART Senior Curator.
