Layered Histories


Project Description

Jaime Scholnick’s frieze-like collages are based on hundreds of studies and more than 11,800 photographs of the surrounding neighborhood. Progressing from dawn to night, the artist spent many hours documenting the area around the station and talking to local residents about their visions for the artwork. She also collaborated with youth through the Leimert Park–based RightWay Foundation, who contributed their photographic perspectives to the project.

Artist Statement

“Speaking to the people of the community, getting a sense of what was important to them, was the crux of my idea and my inspiration.”
