Community of Angels

Project Description

Portraits of a cross-section of Angelenos were photographed in front of a pair of paper mache wings,
constructed by artist Colette Miller and affixed to a roll down gate on Main Street. The wings signify the
goodness that each of us has to contribute to Los Angeles.

Artist Statement

I wanted to present a cross section of Los Angeles, unified by a single object, in this case wings, to
represent how it is our responsibility in the City of Angels, to bring out the best in each other and by doing so, elevate our city.
