Malibu’s first installation of public art  took place on Friday, and was probably the first time a nine-time Grammy-award winning musician, a Chumash Indian blessing and a streaking fire engine from Station 70 came together. That’s Malibu!

And, Sting showed up.

Malibu’s first installation of public art  took place on Friday, and was probably the first time a nine-time Grammy-award winning musician, a Chumash Indian blessing and a streaking fire engine from Station 70 came together. That’s Malibu!

And, Sting showed up.

The occasion Friday was the dedication of “Freedom,” the totem local resident and music legend Herb Alpert gifted to the people of Malibu.

Alpert is a co-founder of A&M Records and a philanthropist, regularly giving to music programs. He also is a renowned fine artist in both paint and sculpture, often inspired by Native Americans.

Alpert remarked:

” I hope you like this piece. You have to see it from many different angles. You know, the one thing about sculpture, it’s like, it can’t just look good from the front. It has to look good all the way around. It has to look good from the other side.”

Malibu Project: Invite James Turrell To Capture Our Beautiful Skies! http://www.livingmalibu.com/malibu-project-invite-james-turrell-to-capture-our-beautiful-skies/ http://www.livingmalibu.com/malibu-project-invite-james-turrell-to-capture-our-beautiful-skies/#comments Fri, 31 Jan 2014 21:48:23 +0000 ritasimpson http://www.livingmalibu.com/?p=3017

Everyday I marvel at the gorgeous sky: sunrise and sunsets we experience in Malibu.

Whether someone captured it in a picture from their deck, their garden, during a hike  or otherwise, the big sky that envelops us shows up with largesse in the skies above Malibu.

Perhaps it’s because there is less clutter here? less distractions? more ...]]>

Everyday I marvel at the gorgeous sky: sunrise and sunsets we experience in Malibu.

Whether someone captured it in a picture from their deck, their garden, during a hike  or otherwise, the big sky that envelops us shows up with largesse in the skies above Malibu.

Perhaps it’s because there is less clutter here? less distractions? more natural beauty to be tuned to? I don’t know the answer. The only thing I know is that our canvas is painted anew everyday. Its magnificent and we all marvel! But after seeing  James Turrell exhibit at LACMA  I’ve been dreaming of bringing it home to Malibu. Not the exhibit, the effect!

It was one amazing experience. If you haven’t gone yet ,Please do not miss it.

How does it relate to the skies in Malibu? take a look at this:

Can you imagine what an installation like this might produce in terms of imagery with the Malibu skies?

Divine!

Can we someday have an installation by James Turrell, somewhere in Malibu , to capture the beauty of the light and frame it in his unique way so we can see something more, something new something transcendental? I don’t know , but I sure hope so!
