Urban Lights by Chris Burden has become an icon for the city of Los Angeles. Movies such as No Strings Attached were filmed at the installation. People come just to take photos among the lampposts, myself included. The 202 restored cast iron antique street lamps which once lined the streets of LA are now grouped together as one of the entrances to LACMA. At night the lamps turn on illuminating Wilshire Boulevard, inviting people to come and experience LACMA after hours.
