That random totem pole decorated with stuffed animals and plastic toys in Elysian Park was removed today, reports The Eastsider LA:

This morning, the approximately 20-foot high totem pole – encrusted with toys, stuffed animals, a Santa Claus mask and other odds and ends – was removed and carted off by Recreation and Parks workers in about two hours with the help of a skip loader. A park worker said no one claimed the items after signs were posted saying the structures would be removed within 72 hours.

Along with the totem pole was a half-moon planter, both apparently removed because of lack of permit. The Eastsider LA article continues:

Mark Jackson, park maintenance supervisor, said he was impressed with the work but the builders never asked for or received a permit. Though many Echo Park residents grew fond of the colorful art park, Jackson said it’s not a good idea to let people just build anything they want in the park without public review. Jackson said notices were posted at least three times since the structures began appearing asking their creators to discuss what they were doing. But he never got a response.

Still, if the builders want to claim the art work, Jackson said they have until next Tuesday to arrange to pick up the pieces by calling (213) 485-3287. If the artists do not claim the pieces, the totem pole and other objects will be dumped.
