Lawndale is excited to announce the 2017 Mural Project, created by Francesca Fuchs.
With a few stripes and shapes in beige, soft whites, and simple grays, Francesca Fuchs transforms Lawndale's blank north wall into the illusion of cathedral pillars, starting a conversation with the building's iconic Art Deco façade and suggesting a deeper consideration of the role that art spaces play in contemporary society.
Francesca Fuchs was born in London and grew up in Münster, Germany. She completed her BFA at London's Wimbledon School of Art and finished her graduate work at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf.
