Currently on display on the vertical billboard at Sunset and Olive as part of the City's Art on the Outside program is artist Raymond Pettibon's No Title ("I thought California would be different").

Raymond Pettibon lives and works outside Los Angeles, where he has been an influential figure in the art community since the early 1980s. To his early admirers and collectors, he was an unofficial in-house artist for the punk music scene of the late 1970s and early 1980s. Today his work is widely admired among the contemporary art audience and has avid devotees in the international field of drawing connoisseurs. While his style initially relied on the conventions of cartoon illustrations, over the years he has developed an entirely personal approach marked by a uniquely sophisticated relationship between image and text.
