We look at stuff like this and think oh
it’s just there, it just happened. But it doesn’t just happen it takes a really
intentional effort. We don’t have to pay an admission fee to go see any of this. It can just be the backdrop of our daily lives, like…what?! (laughs) I started Mural Map LA because I really wanted to share the murals I was finding all over Los Angeles. Folks have been sharing their photos of murals so it’s been this four
year long project that’s really kind of blossomed up in the last few months to
be a tool that lots of people are finding and using all across the city. If you’re drawn to find murals you can also find more about the murals or the
artists that create them. You can get a sense of how the place has changed and evolved and really grown to reflect the Los Angeles that continues to grow and change every day. I hope that by adding this layer to Google Maps with all the murals attached to it that maybe people will deviate from their regular course go off and find a new mural or see one that they’ve been driving past without even knowing it. Oh look! A new one in work. That’s awesome.
