We're making Community Lemonade in Long Beach, CA. Come and make lemonade with us!
! I'm on a 100 day odyssey for community and creativity in Long Beach, CA. We've got such an amazing city, and I'm a huge fan! I want to share it with you! I'm seeking out the creatives and the facilitators of creativity. The art and the locations that inspire art. Bringing them to you, here in this blog, and to others, on the streets of Long Beach.
I call it .
Today I visited the Historical Society of Long Beach and am inspired to document the murals and mosaics of Long Beach, CA.
Several of them will be WPA era, and these will be noted. If not, their funding source will be noted if possible. Photographs of or at the locations will also be displayed, along with any information I can find about the mural.
I know there are many, I probably can't find them all. Still, I can start a list, and you can add to it also.
This list is to be managed in the comments. Here's the format for the list:
- Type of artwork (Mural or Mosaic)
- Location of artwork (building name/school name/building purpose/address)
- Artist name (if known)
- Name of art piece
- Description (size, subject matter, funding agency, year)
- Anything else that I forgot.
If you don't know it all, just list the first two and I will follow up as I can. I'm looking for large works (visible from a distance) but if you have an interesting small mural to point out, I'd like to know that too. (list large or small).
Since this is intended to be a list of artwork, please do not add any non-list items to the comments.
