I have driven by this sculpture at 1800 West Magnolia Blvd. so many times, and just yesterday exclaimed, "Hey, that's art!!"
From the street, the sculpture is somewhat hidden among the trees at the corner of Orchard St. However, It's design describes it so perfectly because I instantly thought to myself, "It looks like a totem pole with pictures of dead presidents" (in other words, money). "Money Totem" is exactly what artist, Ron Pekar, calls his sculpture built of graphically cut Corten steel and mesh.
Six portraits of presidents as seen on American money rise up one above the other overlooking the parking lot of the Burbank City Federal Credit Union.
