Artwork in the Public Space

The San Diego Port Authority commissioned the artist to create an image, filling an entire wall with imagery that features San Diego’s beaches. We worked closely with the architect, construction crew and airport officials, overseeing the design, construction and installation of the mosaic mural. This was a Public Art project with a Budget.

The space is a waiting area for passengers departing and arriving at the San Diego airport. The primary objective was to create a calming image that highlights San Diego’s greatest asset – it’s beautiful beaches. For a FULL SIZE IMAGE CLICK HERE
