Electrical Boxes Get Mural Makeover

The murals feature indigenous plants and animals.

A Los Angeles Neighborhood Initiative (LANI) grant is responsible for three new murals being painted in Highland Park by artist Carlso Callejo.

On Tuesday afternoon, Callejo was putting the finishing touches on his mural painted on an electrical box on North Figueroa Street near the Gold Line tracks across from La Estrella.

Callejo explained that the grant for the murals was applied for by Central City Action Committee, a graffiti abatement program that operates in Highland Park.

The murals feature indigenous plants and animals, including the California state animal--the grizzly bear.

I glanced over the article in the morning and didn't read over the details... meh whatever. Then later in the day I unknowingly drove by the spot and saw them working on it and was pretty blown away. GJ!

I love the way that they painted those transformers. They look great. It's an excellent way to lighten up the community. http://www.permashell.com
