The Children's Clock

Lynn Goodpasture, 2003

Intersection of Melrose/La Cienega/Clinton, on the new building at the Center for Early Education.

One of the largest public clocks in Los Angeles. "At 12.5 feet in diameter, the clock provides a focus of whimsy and color in the frenetic urban jungle....Never the same within a twelve hour period, 'The Children's Clock' offers the public an artwork which is in a perpetual state of change....[It] is fabricated of opalescent glass with large metal clock hands upon which the figures of three larger than life children play, seeming to defy gravity and traditional constraints.
