Manhattan Beach native Gary Sweeney is a brilliant artist that has created an incredibly poignant tribute to his family in transforming his childhood home into an outdoor gallery of the family photos. Sweeney was offered high dollar for the property and with retirement knocking at his door, he crafted a moving testament to his father’s legacy by printing massive images from the family photo albums and cover the house with them.

Redondo Beach, CA 90277
A fixture in the South Bay of Los Angeles, the largest endless pier on the California coastline has been wrecked and restored seven different times due to weather, fire, and the normal wear and tear that happens with a structure that’s well over 100 years old.
