In Los Angeles, The Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles is heading up an Adopt A Mural Program for the 1984 Olympic Freeway Murals and has named FACL, Inc as the Property Manager for organizing the logistics of cleaning, protecting and maintaining initially 4 heavily tagged murals. This work will be done in cooperation with Caltrans, Public Works and several other entities. Following the success with these murals, the other 8 murals that makeup the group will be part of the efforts. The long range plan is to extend the program to other outdoor murals in LA.
