COVID-19 Lockdown Museum Item 22 - Chris Burden's Urban Lights at the LACMA


Pomona College Alumni Chris Burden created this installation around 2008 at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art after collecting street lamps for around 8 years. There are 202 vintage street lamps (no replicas) assembled into this forest of lights. The piece has shown up in popular culture including a few movies and TV series.
