The Hollywood sign seen from
the street on New Year's Day, 1976.
The Hollywood sign "au naturel"
Tightened security prevented him from making it "Hollyween" for Halloween, or altering it to look like it completely vanished for April Fool's Day. Mr. Finegood was proud of his environmental art:
"We broke no laws and did no damage to the sign. An artist's role throughout history has been to create representations of the culture he exists in. By hanging four relatively small pieces of fabric on the landmark, we were able to change people's perception of the Hollywood sign."Danny Finegood died of cancer at the age of 52 in 2007.
