Project Description

The Baroda Wall is an abstract sculpture by artist Brad Howe, originally commissioned in 2005 by David Bohnett, a Los Angeles entrepreneur and philanthropist, for a 200 ft. outdoor wall at his residence. In 2015, Mr. Bohnett donated the artwork to LA County for the benefit and enjoyment of the public. The artwork was installed at the LAC+USC Medical Center in the exterior plaza, a high traffic area for patients and staff going between buildings with seating and landscaping, as well as to the exterior of the Rand Schrader Clinic. Rand Schrader was the longtime partner of the donor of the artwork until his passing in 1993. Schrader was an AIDS and gay rights activist and a Los Angeles Municipal Court judge.
