ITEMS FOUND AT THE BOTTOM OF THE L.A. RIVER--AND MADE INTO AWESOME THROW PILLOWS
As the LA River undergoes a billion dollar renovation, they're finding a lot of crazy shit in its murky depths. The recovered objects inspired artist Billy Kheel to create a giant felt mural filled with hand sewn throw pillows of these objects. Installation at LA County Store in Silver Lake.
