A magician at work! Because of the generosity of muralists, such as Kent Twitchell, Glenna Avila, Frank Romero, John Wehrle, Will Herrón III, and donors, MCLA has brought back an important part of our amazing mural history. It was magical to see Willie bring back a segment of his own "Luchas del Mundo." With your help, we're looking forward to seeing this amazing mural restoration finished, MCLA's last of the 1984 Olympic Freeway on the 101!

ATTENTION MURALISTS: NEWS about FREE protective coating for murals: On 9/18/14, MCLA’s E.D. Isabel Rojas-Williams met with Monica Rodriguez, Vice-President of Public Works to secure FREE protective coating for murals going through the Original Art Mural and Vintage registration process. As per information just received from DCA, "up to 450 sq. ft. of (permanent) non-sacrificial graffiti coating (GCP1000), not to exceed 8 ft. above grade" can be applied by the City for FREE. "If the applicant wishes to use sacrificial coating instead, OCB can provide the 450 sqft. of coating, but the application and maintenance is ultimately the property owner's responsibility."

MCLA would love to include youth to help us clean more murals that have been tagged. As it is, we do an amazing job on a shoe-string budget. Give us the funding & we'll keep our mural history alive, our murals clean, and our youth busy and safe.

Education, opportunities, walls availability, but no punishment for our youth! Funding should instead be re-directed to organizations such as MCLA to work with youth in helping us clean murals that have been tagged, thus educating and giving people a sense of pride and ownership for our mural history.
