On Wednesday, Aug. 17, public works division staff assisted Daniel Stern with the installation of the bronze sculpture entitled, “Action!”

This newest piece of public art being added to Monrovia’s inventory is located in the 400 block of Myrtle Avenue on the east side of the street near the Krikorian Theatre.

As you may recall, the artwork is a life-sized sculpture comprised of three pieces, including an old-fashioned movie director, a free-standing movie camera, and a tall director’s chair.

In addition, the director’s chair is designed to be an interactive piece that individuals will be able to sit on and have their picture taken.

Furthermore, the art has movement, whimsy, and ties into the history and present of the city, as the Art in Public Places Committee recommended that The Monrovia Feature Film Company and “The Argonauts of ‘49” (which was filmed in Canyon Park) be incorporated into the piece.
