The Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Commission approved a $14-million plan to renovate Pershing Square in downtown Los Angeles. A $6-million grant from the Community Redevelopment Agency and an $8-million tax assessment on area property owners will fund the project. Under the plan, the five-acre park will feature a 120-foot-high purple stucco tower, an amphitheater and a pond amid groves of trees.

In Detroit, Denver and Dallas, they settled for a generic air traffic control tower. In Chicago, they liked the basic plan, although they wanted the support column slimmed a little, with a reflective glass finish. But when it came time to build a new tower at Los Angeles International Airport, the Federal Aviation Administration's "plain Jane" concept just wouldn't do. Our artistic arbiters called for a local landmark, something one architect said should be as identifiable as the Eiffel Tower.

The Cultural Affairs Commission has approved eight arts grants for 1992-93 that were appealed for technical reasons.

The Cultural Affairs Commission on Thursday recommended more than $2.7 million in grants for 1993-94, but their fate rests with the city's looming budget crisis. The recommendations must go through budget deliberations including approval by the City Council in April. Although grant recommendations have been rubber-stamped in previous years, the Cultural Affairs Department fears having its funding slashed next year because of a city deficit that may approach $500 million.

The walls of Los Angeles are accustomed to controversy in the form of murals, but few proposed pieces of art have gone through the gantlet of scrutiny that Noni Olabisi's tribute to the Black Panthers--titled "To Protect and Serve"--has endured. After three rejections by the Cultural Affairs Commission and nine months of effort on the part of a city-funded mural program, the work featuring a gun-toting Huey Newton was approved Thursday by all six of the seven commissioners present.

I read comments by certain members of the Los Angeles Cultural Affairs Commission concerning the proposed multimillion dollar "Steel Cloud" project. And I say, install if you must this expensive formless four-block-long contraption to celebrate Los Angeles, but spare comparison "akin to New York's Statute of Liberty," an awe-inspiring symbol of dignity and symmetry.
