Phillip Adams’ “The Return of Pink Floyd” Mural

The mural appears on the south wall of The Shop, a co-working and living space at 350 East 400 South. Created by Philadelphia-based artist Phillip Adams, the work is inspired by “Pink Floyd,” a pink flamingo who escaped from Tracy Aviary in 1988 and made a seasonal home at Great Salt Lake.  Sundial Peak in the Wasatch Mountains can be seen in the background. It’s entitled ‘The Return of Pink Floyd.'” The lenticular design on the building, produced in collaboration with New Orleans-based firm EskewDumezrRipple, means the flamingo appears to change as the viewer moves.
