In Los Angeles, The Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles may still be heading up an Adopt A Mural Program for the 1984 Olympic Freeway Murals. But, even though they named FACL, Inc as the Property Manager for organizing the logistics of cleaning, protecting and maintaining initially 4 heavily tagged murals… they backed out of the agreement and the original artists of the murals remove graffiti as they can with the info and methodologies we have provided. This work is done in cooperation with Caltrans, Public Works and several other entities. They are at an impassion right now hen it comes to establishing and following through with a long range plan to extend the program to other outdoor murals in LA.
