Listen to the public art



Corporate Head, 1990, by Terry Allen and poet Philip Levine was a response to the $500 billion Savings & Loan bailout. According to Michael Several,

“As ethics took an extended holiday during the 1980s, fiscal irresponsibility at the highest level was joined by a pervasive nation-wide moral bankruptcy. . . . By taking aim at the values and ethics of the foot soldiers and icons of the Reagan-Bush years, Corporate Head instantly became one of the most popular works of public art in Los Angeles. Though small in size, it raises large issues with its critique of the greed and the lack of moral direction that define corporate mentality.”
