Karl Benjamin Mural

Our daughter Brooklyn (7), helping artist David Flores with some touch up painting

Visitors ask us all the time about the mural across the street from the Loft. I spot kids walking by it, snapping pictures with their phone. Most of them do not know the significance of the mural or Karl Benjamin was.

The mural, depicting famed artist Karl Benjamin (who recently passed away), was a brainchild of Andi Campognone and Alex Couwenberg, who brought together artist David Flores and the Pomona Arts Commission to create something remarkable for our neighborhood.

Enjoy the short documentary by Hollywood independent filmmaker and photographer Eric Minh Swenson as he tells the story.
