One of the ongoing attractions at the Standard Hotel in Hollywood is the giant glass box in the lobby that is typically occupied by a beautiful woman; Melissa Manning’s ‘Out There’ turns this unofficial art piece into an official installation.

In conjunction with The Look Partnership, Melissa Manning turned the Standard Hotel in Hollywood’s glass box into a Wild West diorama replete with wood panels, a lantern, tumbleweeds, and a giant desert scene. Take a look at the gallery above to get a few glimpses of this eerily beautiful (and slightly voyeuristic) piece.
