A great way to discover La Jolla is on foot, tracking down the murals that have been installed all over; public art, available for viewing 24/7. Artists (William Wegman, John Baldessari, Nina Katchadourian, Ann Hamilton, and others have been commissioned to create site specific work here on big canvasses, that are installed on private properties throughout La Jolla. Perhaps a bit of a cop-out; I prefer street art that is directly, and permanently applied to walls–but the La Jolla murals are still great to search out. Here are three of them.
Go find the others!
