Found LA: Great Wall of Los AngelesGreat Wall of Los Angeles (Coldwater Canyon Avenue, Los Angeles, CA) Map it Free
This half-mile long (2,754 ft) mural in the Tujunga Flood Control Channel of the San Fernando Valley was constructed over 5 summers by Judith F. Baca and over 400 youth and their families from diverse social and economic backgrounds working with artists, oral historians, ethnologists, scholars, and hundreds of community members. The mural is a pictorial representation of the history of ethnic peoples of California from prehistoric times to the 1950’s. The wall is maintained by the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC), the organization that will also guide the tour. LA Commons' Found LA hosts free, citywide tours in which local community members share their neighborhoods, highlighting the best of the city—most of all in the generosity of its citizens.
