A large new mural was finished several days ago in San Diego’s Gaslamp Quarter!
The permanent mural, which can be seen from Fifth Avenue, decorates the north side of the luxury, seven story AC Hotel by Marriott Gaslamp San Diego, which is presently under construction.
The image is inspired by historical photographs and represents the nearby stretch of Fifth Avenue as it appeared in the 1890s.
The tall building depicted on the left side of the mural is the Louis Bank of Commerce Building, which in the late 1800’s became home to the Oyster Bar, one of four saloons and gambling halls operated by Wyatt Earp when he lived in San Diego
The mural’s artists are Swank, Asylm and Vogue, from I.C.U. Art out of Los Angeles.
