"The Evolution of Printing" (1988) by Tony Sheets
 
DESCRIPTION:  66-foot by 35-foot building-mounted concrete relief sculpture 
COMMENT:  Mounted to the lower right of Sheets' relief sculpture is a plaque bearing a quote from Thomas Jefferson.  It is unclear whether Sheets intended this plaque as a companion to his piece or whether the city added them later.
The companion piece to this relief sculpture is "The Evolution of Los Angeles," located on the building's west façade facing Broadway Avenue.
