Murals of La Jolla's Newest Installment at the Empress Hotel of La Jolla
"Suns," the newest installment of the Murals of La Jolla public art project is displayed on the outside of the Empress Hotel of La Jolla, a Greystone Hotel property. Murals of La Jolla is a project initiated by the La Jolla Community Foundation in hopes to demonstrate different artists coming together to enhance the energy and vitality of the community.
€œIt's exciting to have two important artists of our time collaborating on a creation for La Jolla,€ said Lynda Forsha, Murals of La Jolla curator. €œThe mural is experimental and the image is very powerful and dynamic. It is a great addition to this collection.€ (La Jolla Light)
"To create Suns, the starting image was photographed from the top floor window of the Empress... Its slanted incandescent light as captured on the studio surface echoes the raking light of a La Jolla sunset on the hotel's exterior walls." (La Jolla Bluebook)
