Hollywood High School has recently been under works for a new mural on the southwest wall of the building, and as of Nov. 13 2018, it is complete. Students have very strong opinions towards the mural illustrated by artist Don Rimx entitled, “Unifying Eternities”. The mural depicts two colorful, yet anonymous, faces constructed by abstract shapes and objects, alongside various patterns, plants, and shapes. “I like it because it’s really vibrant and pops out at you..” says TCA senior Kelvin Salazar.
On the other hand, many students don’t see eye-to-eye with the intentions of the mural. “…I just don’t understand the historical significance of it, that’s all.” says PAM senior Scarlett Gomez. Hollywood High Principal Edward Colacion says “It celebrates not only the diversity we have here at Hollywood High School but also the diversity in the community of Los Angeles. It was a great opportunity to [improve] this corner, which was kind of neglected.”
