Echo Park artist is always in the middle of everything

What was Echo Park artist Peter Shire doing standing in the Santa Monica Boulevard median strip in West Hollywood surrounded by a crowd, a klezmer band and rush hour traffic? This was weird, even for West Hollywood. Last night’s event between traffic lanes officially opened a display of Shire’s sculptures on the median strip. The exhibit, part of the city’s Art on the Outside program, will be visible through late November — before and after rush hour.
