Tuesday, July 3, 2018

Artist and part-time instructor David Russell, took nearly three months to complete "Welcome to Westchester," a five-story mural commissioned by Drollinger Properties, through a Creative Action class he teaches at Otis College of Art and Design. Creative Action is an integrated learning program that introduces students to compelling social and environmental issues within their community through a series of core courses. The mural represents various landmarks throughout the community, including Otis College of Art and Design, Loyola Marymount University, iconic buildings from the neighborhood, and the Ballona Wetlands.
