WHAT: The Music Center will reveal in dramatic fashion an artistic shade canopy, Paper Airplane, in Grand Park. Designed to enhance park visitors’ enjoyment and comfort by providing needed shade and UV protection, Paper Airplane creates the appearance of 11 planes soaring over the park as they curve gracefully upwards. The canopy was modeled after actual paper airplanes and provides an artistic and whimsical space that gives visitors the experience of seeing a squadron of giant paper airplanes overhead.

The result of The Music Center’s design competition called A Cooler Grand Park, the Paper Airplane shade canopy concept was selected by a public vote with input from a selection committee. The competition asked Los Angeles-based visual artists to submit creative concepts for the inaugural design of a permanent shade structure to be installed in Grand Park’s Olive Court. Funds for the development and installation of the structure were provided by the Goldhirsh Foundation’s My LA2050 Grants Challenge.

WHO: Rachel Moore, president and CEO of The Music Center; Lucas Rivera, director, Grand Park; Greg Naiman, Canvas Specialty

WHEN: Tuesday, September 13, 2016 12:00 p.m.  (Suggested media check-in starting at 11:15 a.m.)

WHERE: Grand Park
200 N. Grand Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90012

 

WHY: Olive Court is a highly trafficked section of Grand Park and often the site for special events and activities. The new shade structure will help make the “Park for Everyone” more accessible and enjoyable, providing a striking focal point for the park along with protection from the sun for the park’s more than 1 million annual visitors.
