Item Details
Remembering Walter H. Deubner is a sculpture by Brian Tolle which graces the entry to a shopping center owned by Macerich - the Los Cerritos Center. Brian addresses the nature of shopping in the content of the sculpture by using the image of the first shopping bag. The massive 20-foot tall stainless steel sculpture is a three-dimensional line drawing, allowing visual access to the building beyond while defining the small plaza in front of it. A system of LEDs placed in recessed channels runs throughout the sculpture allowing infinite variety in the selection of colors. Brian is well-known for his sculptures and installations which are accessible and complex, blurring the border between the contemporary and the historical.
