Use Durable Wallpaper to Bring Art to Busy Public Spaces

Hanging framed prints on the wall isn’t the only way to display art or photos. You can use inkjet-printable wallcoverings to create murals that combine artwork with descriptive text. Art murals can help commemorate major milestones in your organization’s history.

For example, L+L Printers in San Diego uses HP PVC-free Wall Paper for many public art projects in Southern California.

Sites decorated with murals printed on HP PVC-free wall paper include the Museum of Photographic Arts, the Natural History Museum, the San Diego Public Library, the San Diego Registrar of Voters, and the lobby of Tri-Star Pictures.

Wall Paper Mural in San Diego

One of the most visible examples of a public art mural printed by L&L Printers can be found in the San Diego Airport. It was created to commemorate the Panama-California Exposition in 1915-16.

Celebrating the completion of the Panama Canal, the Panama-California Exposition promoted San Diego as the first port-of-call in the U.S. for ships that passing through the canal.  The Exposition transformed San Diego’s Balboa Park by adding a number of spectacular Spanish-Colonial structures to the previously undeveloped 1200-acre park.

The airport murals reflect the legacy of Balboa Park and represent the largest public art exhibition in the San Diego Airport’s arts program.
