Our friend Pasadena Adjacent, known in the art world as Elizabeth Garrison, and partner Victor Henderson have unveiled their new permanent mural, Earth Water Fire Air, located at the Westchester Fire Station #5 near LAX.
For those of us who live in the shadow of ashen hills, this new mural is an especially timely tribute to firefighters, for all the fights they win, for all they stand to lose.
The drama, scope, scale, detail of this work -- astounding.
Click on the link for a full view of the completed work, although it won't give you an idea of the SIZE. And follow the links to see more examples of their installations over the past years. In a manner of speaking, there are pieces of Liz and Vic all over Los Angeles.
