In conjunction with the 2010 IndieCade Festival, the Culver City City Council approved plans to install a temporary giant board game on the sidewalk east of the Culver Hotel.
The project, called Culverland, is the brainchild of game-designer John Derevlany, a Culver City resident. It was inspired by the modern art of Piet Mondrian and the popular Milton Bradley board game Candyland. Players will act as game pieces in a 90-by-18-feet exhibit and move across multi-colored boards, which are based on the colors of passing cars. The rules of the game will be included on the board at its sidewalk location and are also available at culverland.com/rules.htm.
The proposal was submitted to the city council by the Culver City Cultural Affairs Commission and will be paid for out of the city’s art fund.
Culverland will be installed Sept. 30 and open to the public until Nov. 1.
