The newest art installation of the popular murals in town went up earlier this Spring at 1162 Prospect St. Rual Guerrero’s “Raymond Chandler at The Whaling Bar” replaces the mural “Opening” by William Wegman that La Jollans have known since 2014. This latest mural is a salute to the vibrancy of the local arts and culture in La Jolla and the setting spotlights the old Whaling Bar at La Valencia Hotel before the renovation to Cafe La Rue. Murals of La Jolla is a project of the Athenaeum Music & Arts Library since 2010. muralsoflajolla.com

APIARY LAUNCHES WITH INFLUENCE

Apiary launches in San Diego with a mission to help local businesses leverage influence with ease. Apiary was created with a simple idea: reduce the barriers to social influence marketing for both sides of the equation. Apiary’s bench of influential voices is a deep as it is diverse, allowing them to mobilize bands of trusted voices for local brands in markets across the country but rooted in San Diego. Apiary speaks the language of business owners and understand the lives of social influencers. Taking the place of often limited “traditional media options” is influencer marketing—an intimidating new frontier with no number to call or box to check. Apiary’s edge for local business is to take intimidation out of the equation. They match local businesses with engaging personalities best suited to amplify their message. The result is aggregated influence with fine-tuned targeting that doesn’t break the bank. apiarysocial.com
