This mural on Roosevelt Row is by Lalo Cota, who I wrote about~again~a few days ago and his sometime collaborator, Thomas Breeze Marcus. I’ve photographed this building before. This is what it looked like a year ago:
You can see that some of the roses and part of the background remain the same.
Over to the left, under the billboard, this is the mural on the side of eye lounge this month.
This mural changes every First Friday (except in the summer) and is always done by Joe Pagac, who you can watch paint amidst the crowds. This is what it looked like about a year ago:

More to come…
