Posted by Maggie Lever, 1 year, 6 months ago

There is a new mural on The Drake Café patio by Toronto-based artist and graphic designer, Kellen Hatanaka! Based on the curated Desert Cool (aka 1960s Palm Springs) summer theme at the Drake and influenced by the patio space, Hatanaka’s work depicts various unique plants and planters painted on a white wooden fence.
