Happy Holidays from the Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles. We are so excited to share news about 2015. We have successfully reached our fundraising goal to begin restoration of one of Los Angeles most iconic murals, Elloy Torrez’s “The Pope of Broadway” in downtown. By the end of 2015 we will have completed the restoration of all of the remaining 1984 Olympic murals. Look for news about our upcoming exhibition at the Los Angeles Art Show in January 2015!
These exciting and noteworthy accomplishments do not belong to MCLA, but rather to the city of Los Angeles and it’s residents. We could not do this work without the encouragement of supporters like you!
We are so grateful to you, and our dedicated staff, board members, council members, and volunteers. Everyone's hard work and commitment has been overwhelmingly generous. However, we are still in need of public support to maintain our murals and sustain our organization and it’s general operating costs.
As you proceed with your holiday gift giving and year end donations, we ask that you consider making a donation, either on your behalf or someone else's, to MCLA. There are people on your list who will truly appreciate this unique and thoughtful gesture.
Among many things your generous support helps us maintain the restoration of our murals, an ongoing project, keeping them clean for residents and visitors alike. Funding also goes towards developing and facilitating mural tours throughout Los Angeles. Recently, we led a mural tour for over 250 students from Los Angeles County! It was a fabulous experience for the children and our staff. With your contributions we can further develop our educational programs in 2015.
Furthermore, your support helps keep the office running smoothly. It goes towards office supplies and equipment. It alleviates some of the pressure from unexpected expenses that inevitably come-up for all of us (like when the computer crashes or the phone company introduces an additional fee).
Contributions in any amount are encouraged and sincerely appreciated. Donations, and even gift memberships, are a great way to show friends, family members, co-workers and even clients that you are thinking of them, while demonstrating your support for public art. This is an opportunity to spread an important message of holiday cheer and charitable giving. Your generosity will also bring out the kindness in others.
