The Millard Sheets piece affixed to the parking garage at 450 North
Rexford Dr. in Beverly Hills was approved by the City Council Tuesday to
be designated a local landmark to be included on the local register of
historic places. It becomes the 15th such designation for the city.
Sheets mural depicts Spanish noblemen completing or departing on a journey, but it signifies the celebration of travel.
The Cultural Heritage Commission brought the proposal forward in July.
designer William Crouch told the City Council this piece was
disassembled in 1993 from the Beverly Wilshire Hotel and then
reinstalled in 2007.
"It's fitting. It's traveled on its own," Krauch said. "It's a wonderful work of art and great addition to the city."
