A Los Angeles street artist named Lovell Moore, known as the "Crenshaw Cowboy," has been entertaining thousands of motorists with his trash sculptures, dance moves and motivational signs for years.

But earlier this month, he disappeared along with his sculptures from his usual spot on the 10 freeway on-ramp at Crenshaw Boulevard.

Neither the Los Angeles Police Department, the Sanitation Department nor Caltrans will take responsibility for removing his work. And now he is back on the freeway on-ramp, at least for a while.

Independent producer Gideon Brower has been following the ups and downs of Moore's creative life.
