"At the newly painted Skid Row mural this morning with the artists & activists participating in the project. This is exactly the kind of piece I hoped would come out of our mural ordinance – something that inspires community pride and also leads to thoughtful debate and discussion – that’s what great art does.
One of the more amazing aspects of this project is that, as mural organizer General Jeff put it, "Skid Row residents came together to both 'officially' qualify and register" the mural project." (Councilmember Jose Huizar, CD14, 8/14/14)"
