Liquid Shard Art Installation in Pershing Square

Liquid Shard was a public art work that was installed in Pershing Square and revealed July 28, 2016 that got the attention of most everyone in Los Angeles.

It was the main focus of talk on all social media channels and face to face conversations. Unfortunately it was a temporary exhibit and was taken down in August 2016.

The “Liquid Shard” art installation, made from holographic mylar and monofilament, stretches 15,000 sq ft. across the park and rises and falls like a mystical giant, slithering through the wind.

Designed and built by artist Patrick Shearn, the new installation has become an instant hit, mesmerizing downtown residents, office workers and tourists alike, while spawning thousands of posts on social media. The exhibit is part of an on-going effort by the city of Los Angeles to support public art displays.

Pershing Square is located at 532 S Olive Street in Downtown LA.  During the summer months it offers a full roster of outdoor concerts and movies.  In the winter months there is an ice skating rink. For the Pershing Square schedule, click.
