“I felt a spark inside me,” Silva said to Asian Journal. “It was like something supernatural was coming over me.”

With the mural ordinance going into effect this Saturday, October 12, 2013, the City of Los Angeles will call it "Mural Day," marking the end of a 11-year moratorium on murals on private property. Declarations will go on the record Friday, Councilmember José Huizar will introduce a new project in Boyle Heights, and nine artists will use utility boxes on First Street as a canvas.

 

It's the same week that marks the first year anniversary of the rededication of David Alfaro Siqueiros' "America Tropical," which was first dedicated 81 years ago.
