The Unfinished is a temporary public sculpture by artist Michael Parker, produced by Los Angeles arts and culture non-profit the Clockshop. According to the press release,

The Unfinished is an obelisk-shaped excavation located along the banks of the channelized LA River. The horizontal excavation, dug into and through the asphalt of an empty industrial lot, will be a 137-foot to-scale replica of the Ancient Egyptian archeological site known as “The Unfinished Obelisk” For 6 months Parker will coordinate an array of collaborative events and performances on and around the obelisk. “The Unfinished” is a public action in the form of a temporary monument.

The Unfinished is on view until September 12, 2014, and is located in the Atwater Village neighborhood of Los Angeles, next to the L.A. River. Directions are available here. Make sure to check the Clockshop calendar for announcements about upcoming programs in conjunction with the exhibition.
