Huntington Bound

When a 46-foot-wide mural, painted by renowned artist and architectural designer Millard Sheets inside a private Hollywood Hills house, has been donated to the Huntington Library, the big question is: how do you move a thing like that? It would've been a lot harder had Sheets not painted it on a kind of woven wall covering; getting it out of the house was painstaking, but possible. The mural, which "captures Sheets' affinity for the California landscape and ability to create an evocative sense of place," is now being readied for eventual display at the library's future education and visitor center.
