  • Description

  • The latest work in the Admiral Boland Way mural series offers a dramatic, panoramic view of the Anza Borrego desert created San Diego-based artist Adriene Hughes. The work uses infrared photography to illuminate the desert’s plant life in vivid pink hues, and calls attention to the impact of prolonged drought on the region. The 144’ long mural is composed of 45 separate photographs digitally stitched together to create a sprawling collage that references the tradition of landscape photography.
