Santa Monica Mural
1988-1989
acrylic paint
Olympic High School, Santa Monica, CA

In 1988 I received my second endowment from the California Arts Council to be “artist in residence” in the Santa Monica Unified School System. I chose the Continuation High School and worked with teenagers who could not work within the regular school system; their creativity was amazing.

Its location was chosen by the students – on the Pacific Coast Highway where 65,000 cars pass by every day.
