This went up recenly on Winston St. between Los Angeles St. & Main St. Looks like there is now a “Skid Row Beautification Team”…I mean…wow…this is NEEDED (and appreciated by me personally- I mean, I can die now). Man One (ManOne.com) is the De facto ringleader of this new team, as I understand things- from Crewest Gallery @ 110 Winston Street. Check out more photos of this going up here: Flickr.com/photos/crewestman
Unfortunately, yesterday morning it got painted over by a Graffiti Removal “crew”.
This sign went up shortly after the brown paint appeared.
Your play, “Skid Row Beautification Team“…what’cha got next? This stretch could use a couple of trees…you know how to find me if you guys wanna supplement the art (which I am hoping will return) with some green- think about it.
The LAWEEKLY Arts News blog has a rundown of this occurrence/controversy. To read the piece, click here.
And another bit of information in the form of a tweet, from the Los Angeles Office of Community Beautification.
Information is not correct. OCB crews were not responsible for covering over this "artwork". fb.me/2gnABRHmO—
