Lucile Lloyd: A Life in Murals

Event Date: 

Saturday, January 23, 2016 to Sunday, May 1, 2016


This exhibition focuses on the life and work of California muralist and designer Lucile Lloyd (1894-1941).  Lloyd worked closely with architects in creating murals and decorative designs for churches, schools and private residences around the Los Angeles area as well as producing work for the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Arts Project.  Lloyd’s designs vary from abstract motifs to historical figures to religious and mythological scenes but they all share her sense of imagination and use of vivid color.  Also on loan for the first time is her exquisite altarpiece from the St. Mary of the Angels Church in Los Feliz, California.  Curated by Alexandra Adler, BA 2014 Art History.
