Overview

Community Plaza, West Hollywood City Hall, 8300 Santa Monica Boulevard
The mural was designed by Miguel Andrisani who found inspiration in the poem “I Sing the Body West
Hollywood”, a poem created by the City Poet Kim Dower (2016-2018) in collaboration with the West Hollywood
community. The poem’s lines evoke West Hollywood’s landscape, landmarks, people, and joie de vivre, in an
homage to Walt Whitman’s classic epic poem “I Sing the Body Electric.” The artwork brings the poem to life,
through a digital rendering, traversing from day into night (left to right) and from the streetscape to the rooftops
of the City (bottom to top).
