In honor of the inauguration, Hollywood & Highland's infamous Babylonian arch for the last two nights became a wall of projected Shepard Fairey Obama art, compliments of Firefly LA. Every thirty seconds or so, a small rotating set of images and quotes would display on both sides to the pedestrians on Hollywood and traffic on Highland. It was a quiet night in Hollywood, but that didn't stop hundreds of people to look up and drop their jaw in awe.
