Artist John Pugh at the Embassy Suites

Our small town has some of the most beautiful murals in the world...It was an honor to host a world-famous artist like John Pugh.

Embassy Suites welcomed John Pugh as he visited Lompoc for the unveiling ceremony of, “The Boatmen” by Pugh. The ceremony was held at the mural site on the North wall of Sissy’s Uptown Café on 112 south I Street, Lompoc, CA. The mural is located in the “Art Alley” of Lompoc.

Golda Mae Escalante, General Manager said, “Our small town has some of the most beautiful murals in the world. Through the Leadership Lompoc Valley, I was given a chance to discover the murals. I believe there are more than 30 murals sprung up all over town! It was an honor to host a world-famous artist like John Pugh. I hope he enjoyed his stay with us.”

The mission of Embassy Suites is to support our local community by getting involved or donating in any way that we can. We aim to make a difference in our community by giving back when we can.

“Having one of his murals here in Lompoc is quite a deal for us. Thank you for helping with this.” Vicki Andersen, Chair of Lompoc Mural & Public Arts Coalition and Project Administrator of the Lompoc Mural Society.

Pugh is famous for creating incredible wall murals that give the illusion of a three-dimensional scene behind the wall the art is painted on. Pugh has been creating his murals since the late 1970s and his particular mural style sparked the term known as "Narrative Illusionism". Check out his work on his website at artofjohnpugh.com.
