The SOVA Science District campus is a key part of the life science cluster thriving in and around San Diego’s Sorrento Valley. Throughout the past year, Longfellow, a world-class real estate firm that helps life sciences and other innovative organizations flourish, has transformed the campus by adding innovative lab space, offices, and amenity areas. TurningArt partnered with Longfellow to create a mural art program designed to activate the exterior courtyard space for work, relaxation, and play.
“Longfellow truly understands that artwork is an essential amenity and invests in their local art community to bring value to their properties. We presented Longfellow with a wide variety of local talent in order to help settle on an aesthetic direction that would express the ethos of the region and fit the goals of the overall program. Together, we quickly settled on three artists to design six murals that all incorporated local vegetation into their designs, ensuring a diverse but cohesive collection that highlighted the surrounding area.”From Sarah Meiners, Marketing Manager
