Downtown Los Angeles, the 300 block of South Broadway. Cat art on the rooftop of the building at 351 South Broadway. This silhouette of a cat on the rooftop of an old building amused and delighted me when I visited it this weekend.
The thing I didn't realize until now, when I wanted to verify the address for this blog post, is that the mural that used to be on this building, titled "Calle de la Eternidad" by Johanna Poethig is now gone. The building has been renovated, and will become office suites and new retail space. The property developer intends to re-install the mural on the side of the building.
I suppose that is a good thing. But the mural was a wonderful piece of art that lent its beauty and power to the Broadway streetscape. I will miss it.
