A new mural is being installed on Hollywood High School grounds at the corner of Orange Drive and Sunset Boulevard.
It will be seen covering the outside of the previously blank walls of the Liberal Arts building and the sides of the stairs directly in front of the mural. The mural’s art features two large scale faces drawn surrounded by different colors and winding details. The new artwork aims to complement the already existing murals found along the walls facing Orange Drive beside the Wellness Center.
The mural is a part of the Mural Beautification Project, which is a project launched by the Los Angeles Police Department in efforts to inspire creativity and deter from vandalism and graffiti. The project is in partnership with the Los Angeles Consulate of Israel and is supported by School Board Melvoin, various LAUSD facilities and the LA Historical preservation committee.
The mural will begin being installed this week, starting on Thursday, Nov. 1 and ending next week on Thursday, Nov. 8, and will be followed by a ceremony to display it.
