Los Angeles library patrons will have a more beautiful setting to read in soon. As part of a West Hollywood Library renovation, the building has attracted some temporary public art.
Shepard Fairey –the street artist known for his “Obey” prints that pop up across urban landscapes — has painted a giant mural of an elephant and a dove.
California Home and Design has more: “In addition to Fairey’s mural of an elephant and dove, there are additional pieces by street artists RETNA, and Kenny Scharf. The murals are funded by MOCA as an extension of its Art in the Streets exhibit while the city of West Hollywood will pay for an anti-UV and anti-graffiti coating for the pieces. The murals are expected to be up for at least a year.”
