Laura Berger in Palm Springs
I would like to spend just a little more time contemplating and appreciating this mural, from the Ace Hotel in Palm Springs, by Laura Berger. Coming face-to-face with a large-scale something by someone whose work you've admired from afar for a long time is always exciting. In this case it was absolutely thrilling. So uplifting! (No pun intended. Well, ok, pun sort of intended. But it's there in the work -- the lifting is happening and we, too, feel lifted.) Not to mention: So big! I was hard-pressed to get the whole thing in one photo. Finally I did by climbing up on a balcony and (brilliant!) turning the camera sideways. Feast your eyes.
