Public Art

Painter, muralist and watercolorist Richard Haines made a name for himself as a major muralist in the Works Progress Administration. After coming to California to work for Douglas Aircraft during World War II, Haines went on to become a painting instructor at Chouinard and then at Otis Art Institute. His distinctively Modernist vision proved pivotal in mid-century Los Angeles, where he lived and worked until his death. Sullivan Goss is pleased to present the estate of the artist. Below are the titles for his work located in this facility:

History and Architecture

300 North Los Angeles Federal Building is on the National Register of Historic Places. The building forms a single cubic mass, eighteen bays wide by eight bays deep. The perimeter columns are clad in marble panels that extend the full height of the building, delineating the structural bays. A band of marble continues around the roofline to form a simple cornice. The walls of the first, second, and eighth stories are primarily of metal-framed glazed storefront and are set back from the column line, creating a perimeter colonnade around the base of the building and a covered loggia around the top, each with textured plaster soffits and recessed metal can lights. Solid wall panels at the first two
stories are veneered in mosaic tile. The third through seventh stories are wrapped with ribbon windows with staggered aluminum mullions, alternating with bands of precast polished aggregate spandrel panels.

The primary entrance is symmetrically located on the west façade and consists of a wide, T-shaped canopy projecting from the colonnade over the west terrace and entrance steps. The canopy is supported on square, marble-veneered columns and shelters an entrance pavilion with floor-to-ceiling walls of metal-framed glass. The entrance doors are fully glazed, metal-framed automatic sliding doors. The entrance pavilion is flanked by two mosaic murals, Celebration of our Homeland and Recognition of All Foreign Lands, designed by noted Los Angeles artist Richard Haines and executed by the Ravenna Mosaic Company.
