November 27, 1992 | CHRISTOPHER KNIGHT, TIMES ART CRITIC
The recent announcement of artists selected to participate in the public art program at Union Station Gateway Plaza, which upon completion will become the central transportation hub for the entire metropolitan region, was a huge disappointment. The chosen projects are mostly mediocre, hardly reflecting the pivotal importance of the site.

Los Angeles County Supervisor Gloria Molina's husband won a $193,200 consulting contract after Molina's appointee to a local transit board helped derail awards to competing firms, records show. Antonio Villaraigosa, a Molina appointee, abstained from voting on the awarding of the contract to Molina's husband, Ron Martinez, a Los Angeles affirmative action consultant. But Villaraigosa twice voted to rescind award of the contract to other firms after Martinez had lodged formal protests.

Pepoon Osorio's large installation in the 1993 Biennial Exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art is a raucous, exuberant, over-the-top extravaganza, in which the dining and living rooms of a Puerto Rican household are stuffed to the point of bursting with furniture, knickknacks, religious paraphernalia, TV sets and decorative gewgaws of every conceivable style, shape and color. The visual wildness of the installation has enormous appeal. Almost unnoticed amid the energetic glut is the figure of a murdered corpse--a mannequin sprawled at the back.

Poor Hollywood. The neighborhood's already tarnished image wasn't helped by the 1992 riots, which further marred its eastern sections, nor by the rambunctious 1993 mayoral campaign, in which the winner made political hay by holding up the town as a civic symbol of L.A.'s decline.

But she already left the phone before I could say 'sports section.'
