From Matt Stromberg's article in Hyperallergic--

On September 13, the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) granted official approval for the installation of two identical bronze sculptures by Glenn Kaino on either end of the new 6th Street bridge, which opened in July 2022. Each 14-foot sculpture will depict two hands with their fingers forming an interlocking “LA,” a symbol popularized by Estevan Oriol’s 1995 photograph “L.A. Fingers,” in which a Latina woman’s hands form the gesture. The sculptures will be located in yet-to-be-constructed parks located at the Western end of the bridge in the Arts District and in the Eastern end in Boyle Heights.
