The Visual Landscape is Yours: Murals & civic engagement within the public realm: An exploration of people's relationship to their physical environments within the urban construct.

David Russell returns to talk to the Westchester Rotary club to discuss the conception and creative-process of the Westchester Mural, thought to be the largest public mural on the Westside. 

This mural was born from a class at Otis college, where students, through the lens of West Los Angeles's geography and visual landscape, critically analyzed how media and culture within the public realm influences communities. 

More about David: David Russell paints elements of the natural world on large-scale walls and canvases, motivated by the visual aesthetic found in mountain and ocean environments across the globe. David graduated from University of Tulsa with a B.F.A. in Painting/Art history and with an M.F.A. from Otis College in Public Practice. He spent one year in Florence, Italy, studying Painting, Art History and Italian Language. Additionally, he pursued a professional teaching license in Art Education and has eight years of K-12 public school teaching experience. Russell’s large format painting background has inspired the creation of his own mural painting company called Idealwallarts. Projects have ranged from hand painted wall signs, custom canvases, to large format pictorials.

A Climate Reality Presentation
Do you have questions about the greatest challenge we face, climate change, and what you can do about it? With the recent fires, drought and sea level rising in California we have all been feeling the affects of our changing weather. 
As a trained speaker for Al Gore’s Climate Reality Leadership Corp, I will lead a talk about our changing climate in simple terms that make it easy for anyone to understand what’s happening and what can be done. We’ll talk about the science of the climate crisis, and explain the practical solutions that are available today, including simple things you can do to make a difference.

The presentation will explore these three questions - Must we change, can we change, will we change?

Randal Avolio, President/CEO of SEE International, is an Executive Operations

Strategist who has achieved high levels of success by utilizing his operations

management expertise to transform multi-million-dollar medical enterprises from

underachieving organizations into state-of-the-art industry leaders.

Over a three-decade career working for several world-class medical facilities in senior

management positions, Randal has learned how to consistently exceed financial targets

while simultaneously creating long-term sustainability through implementation of

creative and effective operations management strategies. He believes that the most

enduring results come from assembling the right team of people, identifying operational

inefficiencies and creating company-wide commitment to a unified, collective vision

through consensus building, partnerships and mentoring.

Randal's extensive healthcare background has provided SEE with the opportunity to

explore new avenues of programmatic growth. When Randal joined SEE, it had been

struggling both organizationally and financially. Collaborating with SEE’s Board of

Directors, Randal developed a plan to stabilize and revive the organization through

strategic reinvestment in its future. Since then, SEE has not only regained its financial

security, but has also tripled its revenue and programmatic impact. Now Randal is

preparing to lead the organization to new heights.
