MCLA maintains a FREE database of Los Angeles' Mural History linking artists, murals and neighborhoods.

The MCLA website allows submissions of murals created recently in Los Angeles, forming an ever growing archive joining the historic with the new.

To email your submissions, please send high resolution digital images along with the name of artist(s), location, year size and medium to:
