In 2005, the University of Southern California commissioned Images in Brick to sculpt seven murals, each 50 feet tall, for the new Galen Center on the USC campus in Los Angeles. The Galen Center is a multipurpose indoor arena and athletic facility. Architects from the firm of HNTB envisioned a 4-sided structure anchored by massive octagonal towers at each corner. The towers were designed to feature soaring brick relief sculptures on their faces.
After lengthy research, we believe this monumental undertaking may take its place as the largest set of brick murals ever created. In addition, the murals were sculpted under considerable pressure to achieve the desired completion deadline.
