Day 6: Document Art #30DaysofGOOD

image

Watts Towers,¬†Consists of seventeen major sculptures constructed of structural steel and covered with mortar, adorned with a diverse mosaic of broken glass, sea shells, generic pottery and tile, a rare piece of 19th-century, hand painted Canton ware and many pieces of 20th-century American ceramics¬†built without benefit of machine equipment, scaffolding, bolts, rivets, welds or drawing board designs - besides his own ingenuity, Sam used simple tools, pipe fitter pliers and a window-washer’s belt and buckle.

A bit out of the way and in what is a stereotypically “unsafe” neighborhood, but it really is not a bad place to go at all.
