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.
