Ask Chris: There is a Mural Near MacArthur Park of Three People in Lab Coats. Who are they?
By Chris Nichols
That painting, called Holy Trinity with the Virgin, was completed by Kent Twitchell in 1977 for his master’s thesis at Otis College of Art and Design. The college relocated to Westchester in 1997, and its old campus is now an elementary school with a LACMA satellite. The mural portrays Jan Clayton from Lassie, Clayton Moore of The Lone Ranger, and Billy Gray from Father Knows Best—TV shows that figured prominently in Twitchell’s childhood—as Mary, God, and Jesus Christ.
