Shepard Fairey creating Public's Ivy Street building mural. This South Park, San Diego landmark came about as part of the Museum of Contemporary Art 2010 show, Viva La Revolucion. Fairey, one of today's most influential graphic artists, was among 20 different artists adding to the urban visual landscape throughout San Diego during the MOCA show. The mural image he created, at Public's Ivy Street building, 2202 30th St., has become a piece of the neighborhood identity. The clean facade of cement block has become a giant canvas graced with the serene image of a young Buddhist monk, surrounded by detailed gold tapestry. The process is documented with artist interviews & commentary as the building and the neighborhood are enlivened & transformed. If you haven't seen Public's Ivy Street building and the mural in South Park, check out this intriguing story & then head over to see it in person. A lasting piece of beauty indeed, including the mural.
