MOMENT - Mural
3900 West Manchester Boulevard
As part of the City’s Percent for Art Program the Forum commissioned Inglewood Artist Michael Massenburg to create two pieces: a mural depicting some of the events that took place at the Forum and a series of medallions in the pavement which were installed in 2014.
Michael Massenburg utilizes collage techniques, painted figures, abstract images, and found objects within his work to explore social issues. The artist notes that his goal is to “inform, provoke thoughts or inspire” the viewer. Often Massenburg relies on incorporating recognizable images from everyday life into his work to convey stories that are reflective of the culture and history of the community. The artist exhibits at the M. Hanks Gallery and has completed several public art commissions including the Rosa Parks Station (with Robin Strayhorn) and the Watts Urban Greenway for the Los Angeles MTA, Mark Twain Los Angeles Public Library, Inglewood City Hall, and the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City, Missouri.
