The Hollywood Bowl entrance fountain, designed by sculptor George Stanley (designer of the Oscar statuette), had fallen into disrepair over the years. As part of an overall historic restoration project, the assignment was to return the lighting to its original state (circa 1940). A fiber optic system was chosen, and the standard cool white metal halide source was deemed to produce the proper color, showing off the silver-gray granite. Side emitting fiber with an asymmetric throw produced the desired effect.
