rainbow sculpture rendering for Culver CityA rainbow nine stories high and 188 feet wide will tower over Culver City, California, as part of its Art in Public Places, a Sony Picture homage to the rainbow imagined in The Wizard of Oz — which filmed on its movie studio lot there.

According to the artist, Tony Tasset, the $1.5 million sculpture is intended to speak to “the sense of optimism and well-being associated with rainbows in general and more specifically with the rainbow in popular culture as imagined in the iconic Wizard of Oz film, created by the very studio that will become home to the Rainbow sculpture.”

It is designed to be visible from many points around Culver City (a city in west LA)
