Join us on Saturday September 6th in Downtown LA at 11:00am for a tour of the Winston St. alley murals. We will be discussing the history behind WInston St. along with the past and present work in the alley. This alley has been an integral part of the Native American community in Los Angeles and we will also have the participating artists present to discuss their work.

When you want to leave a lasting legacy, working with the community and the city is a must! Kristy Sandoval thinks "community collaboration is essential, and she's willing to let go of her personal style in the interest of that." One of Sandoval's murals, (per DCA) was the first legal mural registered with the City of L.A. since the mural ordinance passed in 2013.=
