Hotel McCoy - Front Entrance

The new owner has refurbished a mid-century building and rebranded it as a modern art hotel where contemporary meets retro.  "From the fully restored pool & cedar-lined sauna to the A-shaped entrance & exposed posts & beams, it’s the best of both worlds."  As you will see now and in future installments, the hotel is full of art.  And it's all by local artists.  Let's begin:
 View to the north from W. Silverlake Rd.
That's a vintage(1966?) T-Bird in front.

On the east side of the entrance is a circle of geometric shapes that symbolize unity and harmony.   It's called a Mándala.
