When you want to leave a lasting legacy, working with the community and the city is a must!

What a fabulous fundraising event by Art Beyond the Glass to benefit MCLA’s next restoration of “Struggles of the World” by the great Willie Herrón III. The event at Sadie Kitchen and Lounge in Hollywood was quickly sold out because of all the great organizations involved and the superb sponsors. Hundreds attended. THANK YOU all for the love!

Among our many recent accomplishments MCLA helped passed the mural ordinance; helped established "Mural Day;" restored dozens of historic murals throughout greater LA, and lobbied to have funding allocated to DCA for a City-Wide Mural Program. We also pride ourselves for supporting people such as Stephen Zeigler, for beautifying our streets with history as seen at Indian Alley & 118 Winston. Stay tuned for our next tour of this great mural site in DTLA. Thank you Los Angeles Times/Samantha Schaefer!
