“The Streamline Moderne-style fountain was built in 1940 by the sculptor best known for creating the Academy Awards’ Oscar statue. Standing over the bowl’s Highland Avenue entryway, it depicts the muses of music, dance and drama.
The 200-foot long, 22-foot high sculpture was heralded as one of America’s most ambitious art projects in 1939 when artists and craftsmen hired by the federal government for the Depression-era WPA Federal Arts Project began constructing it.” (LA Times.)
