GLASSELL PARK — The nomadic Glassellland sign, which has appeared and disappeared from several hillside locations in the wake of permit problems, may once again return to public view, this time in a city park.
City park commissioners on Wednesday are scheduled to vote on a proposal by Justin Stadel, the artist behind Glassellland, to install the plywood sign for six months on a chain-link fence above Glassell Park, a public park on Verdugo Road. Recreation and Parks Department staff have recommended that the commissioners approve hanging the sign’s 10-foot-high letters on the fence as a temporary public work of art.
Says the staff report:
Glassellland is intended to give the surrounding community of Glassell Park a local landmark.
The sign would be installed near its last home on a hill near Kinney Street. Stadel was forced to remove GLASSELLLAND after building inspectors determined that it violated city signage laws in a residential area.
Stadel, who lives next to the park, has pledged to install, maintain and remove the sign, according to the report.
