Eric Haze Creates Billboard Tribute To Adam “MCA” Yauch In Los Angeles

    In a continuation of the outpouring of creative tributes to Adam Yauch, New York City artist Eric Haze has created a billboard in Los Angeles to pay homage to the late Beastie Boys MC. Located above Santa Monica and Vine, the billboard is dominated by huge letters that spell out “Namaste,” a word that originates in the Indian subcontinent and, fittingly, is both a salutation and a valediction. As Haze explains: “I was grateful to be given such a public forum to properly celebrate the life of my friend and collaborator Adam Yauch, and hope that these memorials will reverberate among the community that continues to mourn his passing.” [Hypebeast]
