A large-scale installation by artist Patrick Martinez has transformed LA Plaza’s Vickrey-Brunswig and Plaza House building windows into a monumental neon mural with bilingual social-political messages addressing the plight and resilience of essential workers in Los Angeles.
Referencing and riffing off of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s beloved sermon given in 1957 at the Dexter Avenue Baptist Church in Montgomery, Alabama, the installation consists of 33 neon artworks displayed on LA Plaza’s windows facing Main Street. The public can drive-by or walk around the exterior premises of the historic downtown LA Plaza area to experience the neon messages, glowing day and night during through September 5, 2021.
