Come and explore The Gabba Arts District with a Mural Tour on 04/11/15 (11:00am). Guided & created by Isabel Rojas-Williams the executive director of MCLA & Jason Ostro, The Gabba Gallery director (who has led the creation of the murals) will share dozens of murals recently created by emerging artists to beautify and stimulate a healing process to the social distresses their community has faced. Some of the muralists will speak about their murals & the awareness this project has built for them and the community, while helping to regain LA’s title as one of the mural capitals of the world. The mural tour will end at Gabba Gallery to view the current exhibition, which echoes what’s going on in the Alley. Join us to learn about LA's newest murals, followed by viewing artworks at the gallery while enjoying refreshments! This is a walking tour that lasts 1-1/2hrs, so wear comfortable shoes and bring plenty of water.

FREE for existing MCLA members, non-members can sign-up for $20 at: www.muralconservancy.org/store (Click on the "Donate" button).

Don't miss this great Historic DTLA Mural Tour on Saturday 3/28 (11 a.m.)!
Guest appearances:
1. Legendary Willie Herrón III/Herron Will (artist, co-founder of ASCO, rock musician), whose artworks have been exhibited internationally, will be talking about his role as MCLA's restorer for the 1984 Olympic Freeway Murals (101 Freeway) and about the restoration of his own mural, "Luchas del Mundo" ("Struggles of the World) created for the Olympics.

2. Barbara Carrasco: her numerous artworks have been exhibited throughout the US, Europe, and Latin America, will speak about "Opening Night," the mural created for ATIC's in 2011. "The scene features a who's who of the L.A. cultural scene based upon a variety of sources, as no photographic documentation of the opening night from 1932 exists." The mural is based on Thomas Hartman's digital composite depicting the opening night of "América Tropical."

We have learned about our past because of the paintings on the caves, which date back to approximately 32,000–40,000 BP. One day, future generations will look back at today’s mural history and they’ll learned about who we are. Preserving mural history is a must!
