BACK TO THE WALL: Kent Twitchell points to the Arts District wall that will be home to an updated "Ed Ruscha Moument." In 2006, Twitchell's original 70-foot-tall masterpiece was painted out when the Hill Street building was being renovated. The new version is planned for be 30-feet high, but Ruscha gaze won’t lose impact. “It’s not just about the size, but the scale,” Twitchell once said in an interview. The new "Ed Ruscha Moument" is sponsored by the All City Mural Endeavor, a project spearheaded by LADADSpace and supported by a grant from Council District 14.
