Art in Walnut Creek – 12 Shades of Grey!

Can anyone tell me where this is located?


This is Christian Moeller’s Shhh… Portrait i 12 Volumes of Gray 2010.  He used 3960 books with covers in 12 shades of gray.  Each book spine represents one pixel in the entire image.  The pixels are so large that the image looks distorted to the naked eye.  The picture becomes clearer if you see it through a camera lens or cell phone.

Examples of the books used.  So apt to be located in the Walnut Creek Library, as I remember librarians shhhing me as a child.
