In celebration of the art of Giant Robot, contemporary indie artist, Andrew Hem used OMCA’s Oak Street Plaza as the location for a 12 x 40 foot mural. The mural entitled, "I think that possibly, maybe I'm falling for you," depicts a slumbering youth in a mountain landscape. Hem is known for his large scale murals in urban environments, and is one of the most-recognized among the underground art pantheon of urban artists.
