NEW MURAL INSTALLED IN LA JOLLA 

A new mural was recently installed at 7540 Fay Ave., as a part of the Murals of La Jolla project by the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library. The mural, “Bill 2” is by Alex Katz and celebrates Bill T. Jones, one of the most noted and recognized modern-dance choreographers of our time.

Bill 2, is a striking homage to two artists, Katz and Jones, both renowned in their respective fields of visual and performing arts. The mural’s proximity to the new Conrad Prebys Performing Arts Center gives a nod to the interconnected worlds of art, music, and dance.
