Hollywood Jazz and Icon (2011)

A section of Richard Wyatt’s mural Hollywood Jazz, on a wall of a parking lot next to the Capitol Records Tower at Hollywood and Vine. It depicts jazz musicians who made recordings in the iconic building’s studios. Despite the current frenzy of redevelopment and general sprucing up of Hollywood Boulevard, this badly-faded mural is a visible reminder of how the famous district was allowed to decay in the years after the movie studios left Hollywood.
