Project Description

To celebrate the construction of the new Department of Consumer and Business Affairs (DCBA) Headquarters, the Civic Art Division partnered with DCBA to commission a site-specific artwork in the lobby. DCBA has been the local consumer protection agency serving LA County, promoting a fair and vibrant marketplace and serving consumers, businesses, and communities through education, advocacy, and complaint resolution.
Artist Soo Kim was selected to create an original artwork that honors the work of the department. The design of the mixed-media collage triptych created by the artist was informed through a civic engagement process in collaboration with DCBA. During the engagement the staff was invited to share one to five images of sentimental objects which convey their personal sense of home to be incorporated into the artwork.
