Description

The La Crescenta Library was built in the style of the late 19th century arts and crafts architecture movement and features high ceilings, comfortable furniture and light-flooded readings areas for children and adults. Artist Evan Le Grande Wilson created three large-scale murals and a 300 foot frieze for the interior of the library. The artwork, painted features local landscapes inspired by the views seen from the adjacent windows and resembling early 20th century landscape paintings of the west. The arts and crafts style of the work carries over to the mural in the children’s section where Wilson creates playful imagery in this style.
