"The Evolution of Los Angeles" (1988-1989) by Tony Sheets
 
DESCRIPTION:  66-foot by 35-foot building-mounted concrete relief sculpture

COMMENT:  Mounted below Sheets' relief sculpture are four plaques bearing quotes from civic leaders Otis Chandler, John Anson Ford, Mayor Tom Bradley, and Henry E. Huntington.  It is unclear whether Sheets intended these plaques as companions to his piece or whether the city added them later.
The companion piece to this relief sculpture is "The Evolution of Printing,"  located on the building's east façade facing Spring Street.
