Edward Ruscha
Twitchell's "Ed Ruscha Monument,” a six-story portrait of artist Ruscha on the side of a government-owned building in downtown L.A., was painted over in June 2006. The artist settled his lawsuit against the U.S. government and 11 other defendants in 2008 for $1.1 million. Robin Dunitz
