The public interacts with and becomes a participant in this work of art by Carlos Cruz-Diez, who took over four crosswalks at the intersection of 2nd and Grand Avenue in downtown Los Angeles.

The Broad presents a new public artwork by Venezuelan artist Carlos Cruz-Diez in collaboration with the Cruz-Diez Art Foundation. Couleur Additive takes over four crosswalks at the intersection of West 2nd Street and Grand Avenue. Since 1975, Cruz-Diez has applied his research on color by producing large-scale ephemeral interventions on crosswalks and walkways around the world, bringing art from inside a museum’s traditional walls out into the community. Through his use of crosswalks and walkways, the public becomes participant in and co-author of the artworks as they interact with and move through them at various times of day.
