Here’s how they got Paper Airplane off the ground
After months of prototyping, manufacturing and fine-tuning, Grand Park’s new shade structure has finally come in for a landing. Paper Airplane, created by artists Elenita Torres and Dean Sherriff and funded as part of the My LA2050 Grants Challenge, brings a touch of whimsy to the park’s Olive Court, where food trucks attract hungry lunchtime crowds. This photo gallery chronicles the shade structure project in all its phases, from artists’ vision to reality. Welcome aboard and enjoy the flight.
