Ruscha splayed the landmark Hollywood sign across the smoggy Los Angeles hills like the title graphics of a wide-screen movie and created a witty metaphor for the capital of filmdom.

"The idea of Hollywood has lots of meanings and one to me is the idea of something fake up here being held up by sticks."-Edward Ruscha
