Brandelli's Brig mural

The photo above is of the Brandelli's Brig mural in Venice, California. This was made by Arthur Mortimer in 1973. It is nice to see the mix of old and new murals in Venice. According to the artist's website, the mural was "part of a countywide mural project sponsored by Los Angeles County in 1973." Pictured above are Betty and Babe Brandelli, the owners of the Brig bar.

A fascinating collection of LA mural history can be viewed in the University of Southern California's Digital Library, in the Robin Dunitz Slides of Los Angeles Murals, 1925-2002.
