LA from Detroit is an artist book by Chris Turner. The work featured was completed during a winter retreat to Los Angeles. Christopher Turner, sculptor, painter and mixed media artist, is a Detroit resident who learned his welding skills as a journeyman in Iron Workers Local #25. Turner’s most well-known work, a collaboration with sculptor Mathew Blake, is the massive stainless steel ‘Millennium Bell’, located in Grand Circus Park in Detroit, 26 feet in height with a total weight of ten tons. It is a working public sculpture, albeit one that is sounded just once a year at midnight on December 31/January 1. Turner’s works have been shown throughout Ontario and Michigan.
LA from Detroit is available from from DittoDitto and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) store, for $25.00.
