Calling all muralists!
The Office of the 10th Council District and the Department of Cultural Affairs (DCA) are seeking to enhance the Western Avenue commercial corridor by installing a large-scale mural on the southern and eastern façade of the building located at 1819 S. Western Avenue.
It is with this intention that Council District 10 and DCA will commission an artist to design, fabricate, and install a mural on the building located at 1819 S. Western Ave., which will uplift the work of those serving people experiencing homelessness, as well as bolster community pride and create a sense of place along the Western Ave commercial corridor. The building will serve as the Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority (LAHSA) South Los Angeles Street Engagement and Coordination Hub and provide auxiliary offices for Council District 10’s Constituent Services Team.
Homelessness is the moral crisis of our time, and the City of Los Angeles is in the thrall of this urgent and growing crisis. In response to this challenge Council District 10 has directed that this office serves as the South Los Angeles Street Engagement and Coordination Hub for homelessness in the area.
