Description

Artist Louise Griffin designed a three-dimensional display to promote Los Angeles County in the California State Capitol building in Sacramento. Student competition winner Mario Hernandez's digital mural titled "Native Scream" was a point of inspiration for Griffin's artwork that captures the diversity of Los Angeles County. The goal of this project is to give staff members and visitors at the Capitol building a introduction to the County landmarks and statistics.
