- Open Wall is an investigation into the possibilities of continuous change. At 5601 West Adams Boulevard, a steel picket fence encloses a 30 foot cinder block wall and a narrow strip of land on which two mature fan palms reside. Binomial Nomenclature is a scientific system for naming all the world’s fauna and flora. Open Wall Salon is made possible with funding from Stiftung NRW and with the support of the Open Face Food Shop.
