Murals/Banners/Supergraphics Fabricator Church of Scientology Intl. Commerce, CA (323) 767-2580 Designer Gensler Los Angeles (213) 327-3600 Client Inglewood (CA) Church of Scientology Church officials wanted a mural above the entrance at its community-center entrance – nearby on L.A.’s south side – to pay tribute to the area’s cultural legacy. The 8 x 22-ft. mural was originally designed to be ceramic tile, but was redesigned to reduce cost. The church’s in-house signmakers cut the pattern from ½-in.-thick Chemcast® acrylic sheets on a MultiCam 3000 CNC router. Each section was handpainted with acrylic-latex paint, and, to create a highgloss finish, the entire mural was covered with Coastal Enterprises’ PB Resin. Grooves between sections were filled with brown grout to complete the design intent. 88 SIGNS OF THE TIMES / MARCH 2012 / FIRST PLACE
