KCET aired this 6 minutes documentary about Siqueiros' 1931 "Street Meeting" for their "Life and Times" segment in 2005. Created by award winning producer Val Zavala, the documentary was nominated for an EMMY Award in August of 2005. On Siqueiros Mural Discovery 10th Anniversary, MCLA celebrates & salutes our friends Val Zavala, Luis Garza, José Luis Sedano, Nobuyuki Hadeishi, and Dave Tourje for their dedication to keep LA's mural history alive!

As many of you know, every year the Mural Conservancy seeks contributions in support of our mission to restore, maintain, and document the murals of Los Angeles. Here are four great reasons, from four great artists, to be a part of our mission and donate and share this link today!

Art is not what you see, but what you make others see.
- Edgar Degas
The Murals of LA are important. They provide inspiration, hope, beauty, and happiness to the countless residents and visitors of LA. Securing and ensuring this inspiration is our continual goal.

Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.
- Pablo Picasso
Not only is it important to cleanse ourselves daily with a good dose of art, it's vital to keep our murals clean. By cleaning the dirt that accumulates on the surface of the murals we expose the vibrancy and vitality of the works, while preserving the intention of the artist.

If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint.
- Edward Hopper
MCLA works to maintain freedom of speech and expression, while also preserving the rights of artists. We continue to work with the City and several artist to ensure their murals, and their messages, are protected under the ordinance.

Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.
- Vincent Van Gogh
We are a community. MCLA could not restore and maintain murals without your continued support and positive energy. By working together, each and every one of us assumes responsibility for the restoration and maintenance of not only our murals, but our beautiful city. It's the snowball effect, your generosity brings out the kindness in others, and together we make things happen.

Every dollars counts, every contribution is equally invaluable in ensuring freedom of expression and continual inspiration.
