When Guerrilla Street Art Serves the People

A remarkable story from We Like LA was published last week.  As an LA native and frequent traveller of the 110 freeway through downtown Los Angeles, I was absolutely fist pumping with joy when I came across this story.  What’s even more fantastic is that this public service, done by a local artist who wanted to help his fellow citizens, was captured all on video in an equally satisfying 10 min film.

Unfortunately, the post-script to this story was happened 8 years later in 2009, when the whole sign was replaced during an update.
