Downtown LA Public Art: “Spirit of Growth”

“Spirit of Growth”
By Tony Sheets.
A bas-relief mural on the Broadway Spring Center parking structure on Spring Street between third and fourth in downtown LA.

“Four separate stories in “The Spirit of Growth” speak of the variety in Downtown’s historic core. The area’s ethnic diversity is represented by the figures in the panel on the lower left; architectural history is represented by the Stock Exchange, the Arcade Building, theaters and banks; economic history is represented by grape fields, citrus groves, oil wells, laboring men and the movies; and transportation history is represented by a line of cars, buses, horse-drawn wagons, a trolley and Angels Flight.”
