Hello!

After a bit of a delay, I am back with posts — and this week’s post is guest-posted at KCET’s SoCal Departures Writing on the Wall blog, thanks to an invitation from Ed Fuentes.

So click over there to see pictures of the Beverly Wilshire Hotel‘s Millard Sheets Studio mosaic as it once was, and now as it is being re-installed in at the Beverly Hills Civic Center!

UPDATE: This week I saw that the installation is done, and it looks great!Beverly Wilshire mosaic as reinstalled at Beverly Hills Civic Center, April 2013

  1. It’s great to see a restoration of a Millard Sheets Studio mosaic. Be sure to post the details of the May rededication ceremony. The introduction to the KCET posting quoted you as saying,
    “I hope to inform the owners of these unique properties, and to get them in touch with living Sheets Studio artists and trained preservationists to help maintain this public art for generations to come.” I recently visited the Valhalla Memorial Park in North Hollywood where there are several Millard Sheets mosaics on the mausoleum, one of which is in need of restoration.
