Chase Bank does something I approve of

You know, I don’t like Chase Bank, but I like what they did for this mural:

“Meanwhile, one of Sheets’ mosaics just got a pricey facelift. Chase Bank, which now owns the former Home Savings chain, recently spent six months and approximately $400,000 refurbishing a 1974 mosaic at the Rolling Hills Estates branch depicting horseback riders by the sea.”

Home Savings buildings in So Cal have always been famous for their public art. I’m glad to see Chase appreciates that because Washington Mutual never did.
