his large scale mural adorns the east wall of the 25 story condominium “One Hawthorne” in downtown San Francisco. The abstract artwork titled "Landmark", created by well-known sculptor Robert Hudson, was faithfully reproduced by KVO onto 90 individual panels measuring 42.75” x 57.5” each. The finished mural spans 15 floors of the building measuring 11’ wide x 144’ high.


KVO also designed and fabricated the aluminum framework for the installation of the porcelain panels. This beautiful public art project will be enjoyed for many years and can even be seen driving into San Francisco from the Bay Bridge.

Throughout the design inception and construction of this finely detailed mural at the One Hawthorne Project, I was impressed by KVO’s dedication to their craft and responsiveness. They are excellent communicators and provide a quality product. I look forward to working with KVO Industries Inc. on the next project.
