The Map


Walter Munk Foundation


Brailsford Public Art

The Map of La Jolla Canyons was commissioned by the Walter Munk Foundation as a tribute to Walter Munk.  One of Munk's many accomplishments was the discovery of these canyons off La Jolla Shores.  The art piece was executed using Craftsmen Plaza Monolithic Mosaic.  It was initially fabricated off-site by Robin Brailsford and Wick Alexander then brought on site once it was ready for installation.  

In total, there is 2,400 sf of mosaic art embedded monolithic with the concrete.  The Map depicts 123 species of sea life that reside within the canyons including a 31 ft image of "JJ" the baby gray whale.
