The Athenaeum Music & Arts Library is pleased to host walking tours of the Murals of La Jolla. Tours start at the Athenaeum the last Wednesday of every month. Join fellow art enthusiasts and learn more about the artists and their artworks created specifically for Murals of La Jolla during a guided walking tour led by project curator Lynda Forsha. During the tour you will learn more about each artist and the type of work they make beyond the Murals of La Jolla Project. Each mural has its own story and by the end of the tour you will know more about the inspiration and concept behind each image.

 

Fourteen murals are currently on view, and each tour features more than half of these. The route changes each time to accommodate new murals and is approximately 90 minutes. It is a gentle walk around the village but we ask participants to please wear comfortable shoes. We will end the tour with a wrap-up reception at the Athenaeum.

 

Murals of La Jolla, founded by the La Jolla Community Foundation, is a project of the Athenaeum. Murals of La Jolla demonstrates that commissioning artists to create works for public spaces brings energy and vitality to a community. Over the past four years, large-scale artworks have appeared in a variety of locations throughout the village of La Jolla, some prominently displayed while others are tucked away in more discreet locations.To date, new works by Mark Bradford, Jean Lowe, William Wegman, Kelsey Brookes, John Baldessari, Gajin Fujita, Anya Gallaccio, Robert Ginder, Ann Hamilton, Robert Irwin/Philipp Scholz Rittermann, Nina Katchadourian, Kim MacConnel, Ryan McGinness, Roy McMakin,

Richard Allen Morris, Catherine Opie, Julian Opie and Fred Tomaselli have been installed throughout La Jolla.
