My homie Desi WOME runs an amazing project called COMMUNITY REJUVENTAION PROJECT, an amazing program. Taking walls that are abandoned and ugly and making beautiful. Cleaning up the community picking up trash, and landscaping planting gardens. With the mentality that its great to have nice sights through out the community, buts its bigger than that. There is positive meanings behind the murals celebrating culture and encorperating the history of the area into the imagry. In addition its bringing in youth to learn how to create murals and grow as artists. A element to the project is throwing block parties, a Celebration when the mural is done. Please check out the blog and join the cause on facebook, this is just the beginning a whole restoration project will unfold from this.
