Project Area: North Hollywood
Project: Parkway Electric Façade Renovation
Project Location: 5767 Lankershim Boulevard
Project Type: CRA Initiated
Parkway Electric was an average small electrical shop, windows stuffed with supplies, before artist Susan Krieg was offered the chance to participate in an upgrade to its façade. To hide the stores stock, Susan painted four neon-enhanced 8'h x 6'w paintings on metal panels hung in the store's windows. Together they read as a large mural with the artist's interpretation of electrical components, bulbs, wires and sockets. On the rear of the building, she tied the project together with a very large trompe l'oeil mural of an electrical outlet and wire sneaking around the corner.
