Thursday Doors – March 9, 2017

Well, this is not a real door but it plays the part of one at the Music Center Plaza in downtown Los Angeles. “Dance Door” is an ornamented life-size bronze door created by sculptor Robert Graham. He also created the bronze doors of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, which I featured here not long ago. The “door,” which weighs approximately two tons, is hinged on a bronze frame and locked in an open position. Abstracted figures of dancers are cast in low relief on the door panels.
