Join ASA -SD chapter art enthusiasts for a walking tour of the Murals of La Jolla led by project curator Lynda Forsha. The Murals of La Jolla was conceived in 2010 as a means to enhance the civic character of the community by commissioning public art projects on private property throughout La Jolla. It is a project of the Athenaeum initiated by the La Jolla Community Foundation.
An Art Advisory Committee composed of the heads of the major visual arts organizations in La Jolla commissions artists to propose the intervention of an image on specific walls on privately owned buildings. The first two artworks by Roy McMakin and Kim MacConnel were painted directly on their sites. Subsequent artworks have been printed on vinyl and installed on billboard-like structures. Each work is on view for a minimum of two years and has been generously funded by private donations.
The tour will be approximately 75 minutes long. Immediately after we will gather at the Public House in La Jolla for drinks and light refreshments.
$20/person includes 2 drink tickets and food
