Wings Mural in OC: Kelsey Montague #WhatLiftsYou Project

On Wednesday, October 18th, artist Kelsey Montague unveiled her “Wings” mural in Orange County at the Village at La Floresta in Brea. Her #WhatLiftsYou project has been sighted all over the world. (Click here to see her Instagram.) Most of us have seen her wings in social media all over Los Angeles. This is most exciting for us OC locals because now we can access her beautiful creation in just a short drive!

Kelsey Montague’s #WhatLiftsYou campaign gives people the opportunity to become a “living work of art” as they pose in front of her wings and share with the world what inspires them most in life. You can see many of these photos on Instagram when you search the hashtag #WhatLiftsYou. What a wonderful uplifting phenomenon!

The unveiling event included delicious tray-passed hors d’oeuvres from Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern. Their restaurant menu is filled with so many traditional comfort foods like Buttermilk Fried Chicken, Ale Battered Fish and Chips and Pulled BBQ Pork Benedict. For vegetarians they offer a Veggie Bennie for brunch or a Double Veggie Burger for lunch or dinner. If you haven’t experienced Jimmy’s, you should bring your hungry tummy over there and enjoy. You can find them in Brea at the Village at La Floresta or at one of their other spots in Dana Point, San Diego, Woodland Hills and Santa Monica.

And did we mention their cocktails? Sip on mimosas, bellinis or bottomless champagne with brunch or you can drink your breakfast. Jimmy’s “Meal Mary” is a Bloody Mary with Chopin Vodka, Bacon, Blue Cheese Olive, Chilled Shrimp, Pepperoni, Jack Cheese, Pepperoncini & a Jalapeño Bedeviled Egg! There’s an array of drinks to choose from and the wine list is impressive. 

If you are in Orange County take a little drive to the Village at La Floresta in Brea and visit this wonderful mural. You’ll also find other interesting things at this center too – shops, other restaurant options, fitness classes and more!

We noticed an interesting Happy Hour sign at Whole Foods Market, where the mural is displayed. They have a fun event called “Tap Takeover” with their craft beers. We will have to come back on a separate road trip and check that out! Stay tuned…
