After Facebook moved from Palo Alto to more spacious digs in Menlo Park, they invited Johnny Botts to fill the big empty walls of their sales and marketing building. They invited artist Johnny Botts to a mini “hack” with DJ music, food, and games, where the sales and marketing group could participate in painting a mural with him if they were so inclined. “They were open to anything, but told me how Facebook connects people and helps share information. That got me thinking to show my robots connected,” Johnny said.
Besides the first mural, Facebook gave Johnny free reign to paint other areas of the building as he was inspired. Over two weekends, he painted his signature robots, rockets, ray guns, and a twenty foot diameter “Wonderball” in the two story lobby.
Part of our recent mural project was painting the lobby in one of the buildings at Facebook HQ. The walls were so big we needed a "sky-jack" to reach the top!
