GIANT INFLATABLE RABBITS ARE INVADING DOWNTOWN L.A.

Giant rabbits are about to “intrude” on DTLA, but don’t panic… it’s all part of an ultra-funky art installation.  The developer Brookfield is hosting the national tour called Intrude created by Australian artist Amanda Parer.  The light art installation hops into DTLA in June, after stops in New York City and Houston.  Intrude is made up of 7 inflatable rabbits of water-resistant and fireproof nylon.  Each rabbit is lit internally with LED lighting. 

Two of rabbit figures are huge, scaling over two-stories in height.  One measures approximately 39 feet high and the other 39 feet long. These rabbits will join Intrude’s five original sculptures, which have a been seen in 19 major cities throughout the world, including London and Paris.

When Intrude opens in DTLA on June 5th (through June 11th), it will be free to the public. It will be spread across three of Brookfield’s DTLA properties:

  • Bank of America Plaza (333 South Hope Street)
  • Wells Fargo Center (330 South Hope Street) on Bunker Hill
  • FIGat7th (735 South Figueroa Street)
