NoHo Weekend


Soliloquy by Levi Ponce. On the the corner of Huston St. and Lankershim Blvd. in North Hollywood, CA.

The wonderful thing about the NoHo Arts District is there’s so much to do and see.  It is home to contemporary theaters, art galleries, cafes, shops, and really excellent street art that you kind of just stumble onto.  This adds to the NoHo experience.  The public art is generally tucked away on side streets and not always noticeable from the main boulevard. The best way to find and view the art is by walking.  Street ViewThis featured piece is on the side of Al’s Discount Furniture Store and down the street from Sweetie Pie’s.  Consider this idea for a fun and relatively inexpensive weekend activity:  ride the metro to North Hollywood’s art district;  browse some of the unique shops; eat at one of the many eateries on or near Lankershim Boulevard; take a walk to view the many murals and other public artworks in the area.

Side note about the artist, Levi Ponce:  Like two of the other down low Picassos that have been featured, he too is from Pacoima, CA.  It appears there are a lot of very talented street artists coming out of that area who are working together to make a positive impact on their childhood community through art…and fortunately sharing their artistic gifts in other neighborhoods.
