On 12/18/13 Ed Fuentes wrote about MCLA's E.D. The article was reposted by KCET DEPARTURES today, hours after Isabel and Willie Herrón III were interviewed for KPFK's Deadline LA. "Los Angeles has a love affair with our iconic murals and our city is quickly regaining its title as The Mural Capital of the World thanks to all those muralists who were with us at City Hall, fighting for their rights to legally paint murals again. Let's repaint our mural history by honoring all of those who are making LA a cultural destination!" (Isabel Rojas-Williams)

MCLA, lead by Board President Eric Bjorgum, is trying to help save historic 1976 mural that speaks about US Bicentennial. 6,000 have signed a petition to save a mural that speaks about the celebration of freedom. A local lumber company would donate the paint, and volunteers would do the work. Murals are open-air books. Knowing and learning about our past will help shape our future.

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."
