‘No Movement’: Art Installation at Glendale’s Adams Square Mini Park Gas Station

The community is invited to enjoy artist Erin Fussell’s art installation “No Movement” at the Adams Square Mini Park Gas Station, 1020 E. Palmer Ave. in Glendale continuing until Feb. 26.

“No Movement” celebrates and critiques the Streamline Moderne architecture of the Adams Square Mini Park Gas Station, which emphasizes speed at the early stages of car culture. Today, those who live in the greater Los Angeles area deal with extreme congestion and long commutes. The tradeoff, however, is mobile independence and the ability to go anywhere at any time.

This exhibit examines how much has changed since the 1930s when the Adams Square Gas Station was constructed. How might commuters shift their thinking when dealing with changes in climate, relationships and resources? What do these things reveal about the culture?

The sculpture within the Adams Square Mini Park Gas Station will be made of repurposed used car parts with a one-channel sound installation using a low power radio transmission that can be picked up on visitors’ car radios only on-site.
