TERRY SCHOONHOVEN was born in Illinois, received a Bachelor of Science from the University of Wisconsin and attended graduate school in art at UCLA. In 1969, he co-founded the Los Angeles Fine Arts Squad and has been painting large scale public murals on his own until his death in 2001. Schoonhoven received NEA and CAC grants and was one of California’s most prolific muralists. He created the mural “City Above” commissioned by Home Savings Bank for the Metro Rail Figueroa Street entrance at the 7th Street/Metro Center Station as well as the mural installation at the Cal Street LA Metrolink Station. In much of his work, Schoonhoven used a trompe l’oeil technique to incorporate his paintings into the building’s architecture.
