Wall Street has a long tradition of putting up homes, sometimes to be torn down and reused again.
But this time around, Wall Street may have found a new method of getting the most of a home: custom-made, personalized wall art.
“Wall art” is a term often used to describe artwork, or “art,” that’s designed to show off the home’s interior design or aesthetic.
“I think it’s pretty well established that people have been wanting to put wall art on their walls for years, but people didn’t really know where to start,” said Jonathan Bales, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, who studies home design.
“The people who were starting to think about it were looking at their walls and they’re like, ‘I don’t know where I should put that wall art.’
So I’m kind of looking for the best way to make it look good.”
The solution: Build a custom home.
Bales and his team at the USC Santa Barbara School of Architecture, Design and Planning created the “The Wall Art Revolution,” a series of projects inspired by the rise of the digital era.
They started with a collection of 60 wall murals by artists including Salvador Dali, David Hockney, and Terence Davies.
These are then arranged in different designs to make the house feel unique.
The goal is to give a home a sense of its individual identity.
The project, which also includes a wall painting, was created in collaboration with the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
The home will be completed in spring 2019.
“We wanted to do something that’s going to look like a real home, with a real feel,” said Bales.
The walls are then covered with a mix of wall art and other decorative elements.
The wall art can be as simple as an image of a familiar home, or as elaborate as a contemporary art installation.
“It’s really about trying to create a place that feels like a living, breathing home,” said Dali.
Backs said the murals will be available for purchase in the near future.
“There’s a whole other side to it,” he said.
“This is not just a way to showcase a home, this is a way for people to feel like they’ve found their home.”
For Bales’ team, the mural project was inspired by a “wall art revolution” at the Smithsonian Institution, where they made a series that included images of famous American paintings, from Dali’s “The Sign of the Cross” to Banksy’s “Rise of the Vulcans.”
The Smithsonian’s Art of the Century series was created to celebrate art that’s “outstanding and iconic in the field,” according to a Smithsonian.gov page.
The Smithsonian, which is part of the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, also partnered with Bales to create the project.
The museum has offered a number of other wall art projects, such as a wall by Salvador D. Aguirre that has been installed in the National Portrait Gallery.
The “Wall Art Revolution” will be a one-of-a-kind project that will be on display in the museum’s permanent collection.
“They will have a permanent wall-art installation in the permanent collection, and it will be displayed in the art collection, so people can look at it in the gallery,” said David Luecke, director of exhibitions and collections at the museum.
“And I think it will bring the Smithsonian and this project together, and we’re excited about it.”
For the new mural project, Bales said the goal was to create “a very specific home that’s a unique piece of art that people can own.”
“We are not just doing a project on a whim.
This is not a random house that was made on a wall,” said Luecek.
“So there’s this underlying philosophy, that it has to be this piece of home.
Balsons team will be showcasing the wall art in the USC Museum of Fine Arts and Design’s “House of Art” exhibition, which runs through October. “
That’s why this project is so special,” he added.

“What we are really trying to do is to use the art and the wall to do a whole series of things, so that the audience has this feeling of ownership,” said Terence Gavron, the curator of the exhibition.
“To show that this house is a living thing, it’s a living home, it has a living spirit, and that’s what we’re trying to achieve.”
The wall mural project is part a larger effort by the USC Art Museum to create new and engaging exhibits for students.
The USC Art Center, which opened in 2011, has made several notable initiatives for its students, including a new theater program
