From its inception, Hollywood has projected the image of itself as a place where anything can happen. As a district within the city of Los Angeles, Hollywood encompasses a reservoir, canyons, a municipal park, a freeway, expansive commercial boulevards, quiet residential communities and massive studio lots. This plate illustrates the idiosyncracies of the region where all things aspirational and gaudy, natural and artificial, converge. The Hollywood Walk of Fame is highlighted with a red dashed line. To the east is a green dashed outline over a portion of the 101 Freeway, indicating the future site of the Hollywood Central Park.
These porcelain plates measure 12inches across. Key buildings are represented with persimmon icons, while bodies of water and public spaces are shown in blue and green. Each plate is boxed and includes a key to the buildings and spaces represented on the plate.
