Spring 2020 Artist-in-Resident, Rinaldo Hopf, started working on his mural which is a tribute to TOM’s 100th birthday. This video was recorded on 27th March, 2020 before Rinaldo safely returned to Germany.

Below is an excerpt from Rinaldo’s diary from 28th March, 2020.

“I left LA Saturday and arrived safely in Frankfurt via Toronto. Air Canada was the only airline to still offer flights form LA to Germany, and Monday will be their last flight.

Sharp, Marc Ransdell Bellenger, Hatt Merlino, Daniel Szuhay, Alex Iarocci and Roberto!”
