Make that Lemon Grass green, the shade of paint now covering a block of Griffith Park Boulevard in Silver Lake. City workers equipped with a paint sprayer and rollers spent about 2-1/2 hours this morning colorizing the street, which is being turned into a pedestrian plaza that will decorated with a green-on-green polka dot pattern. “That’s green alright,” said one worker of the Lemon Grass, which, judging by the cans of paint stacked in a nearby truck, is a shade from Home Depot’s Behr paint brand.
Where are the dots? Painters were allowing the Lemon Grass to dry before painting the dots – 34 inches in diameter – in a shade of Grape Green. The pedestrian plaza – officially known as Sunset Triangle Plaza – will be dedicated during a grand opening ceremony next Sunday, March 4.
Update: Workers painted the dots with the help of a large stencil. Click here for photos of the results.
