La Jolla added the above two-sided mural just in time for its free Murals of La Jolla Walking Tour on Thursday, May 16, at 6 p.m.  The tour of this 11-piece collection starts at the Athenaeum Music and Arts Library, located at 1008 Wall Street in La Jolla. Reservations are recommended (858-454-5872).

In addition to the beautiful murals around La Jolla, guests will find a collection of tile mosaics scattered throughout the hallways of La Jolla Cove Suites. Krista’s mother, Kay Heron, was a great lover of art, and mosaics were a favorite of hers. Not only did she collect these mosaics, but she and her brother, Jack Heimburge, actually tiled the pillars in the front of the hotel using blue Italian tiles.

So, which one of these mosaic pieces is your favorite?
