Monrovia to install new art piece at MODA
A new public art project will be installed at the MODA at Monrovia Station apartment complex, next to the Gold Line stop at Station Square, according to City Manager Oliver Chi.
City staff worked with the Art in Public Places Committee and MODA developers to install a public art piece at the complex. This announcement comes only a few weeks after the installation of a sculpture by artist Daniel Stern on the 400 block of Myrtle Avenue, near the Krikorian Theatre.
City staff considered several options before selecting Justin Hansch’s “Monrovia Falls” piece for the installation. It uses cascading reflective discs, like those used in Sparkletts’ water delivery trucks, to give the art piece a shimmering effect. It was inspired by the Monrovia Canyon Falls, and would measure 36 feet tall and 16 feet wide.
MODA at Monrovia Station is a five-story, 261-unit luxury apartment complex. Built by Legacy Partners, Griffin Capital and Silverpeak Real Estate Partners, it’s projected for completion by 2018.
