If you visit the Lost Angeles County Museum of Art, you’ll be able to walk through this art installation made from 202 street lights arranged in a tight grid. Over the course of about 20 years, artist Chris Burden collected 1920s- and ‘30s-era street lights, which he meticulously restored, painted, and installed in 2008 as ‘Urban Light’ at LACMA’s entrance. This year, for its 10-year anniversary, the 309 incandescent light bulbs of the sculpture were replaced with more efficient LED bulbs designed to emulate the soft light of the original bulbs and to reduce harmful emissions.
