Discover American artist Sage Vaughn's art installation at Westfield Century City for a limited time this holiday season along the Santa Monica Boulevard windows and the black staircase near Kiehl's on Level 1.
ABOUT THE WORK
“It’s easy to be inspired by this time of year—I wanted to add to the joy of the holidays with the joy I get from art-making. Drawing from my ongoing visual vocabulary that originates with my studio practice, I took JOY as a motif for designing the holiday windows at Westfield Century City. It was great to work with the different spaces and imagine their different viewers—people walking through Westfield, people in cars on the street. I hope the joyful energy of the butterflies will carry them through this happiest time of the year.”
