SoCal, What's Good?

Phantasma Gloria

What it is:
One man's trash is another man's homage to the sun. Phantasma Gloria is a collection of bottles, beads and wire, sculpted together to make "Earth's first vast glass sun catcher." And it is vast: the installation has grown to be over 37 feet tall and 50 feet long (and still growing)!
Why it's cool:
Stand back to see clear shapes, including dolphins and a Virgen de Guadalupe. Get close to see countless refractions of the world around you.
You should know:
Phantasma Gloria is an incredible sight any day of the week, but artist Randlett Lawrence recommends visiting on sunny mornings, ideally at 9 a.m. in the winter or 10 a.m. in the summer.
