In Los Angeles, as in all other parts of the world, we have a dedicated group of artists who transcribe our current existence by using art. The muralists in the Los Angeles area choose buildings in our city to use as their canvas, to display the art and sometimes the stories of our time.

One mural, at Sixth Street and Ceres Avenue, was painted as a way to inform local drug users (disposing of used hypodermic needles by tossing them over the wall at the location) that they were jeopardizing the lives of children who where finding the needles in the daytime. Muralists used the art form of painting show children were on the other side of the wall and the ritual stopped immediately.
