the “Skid Row Beautification Team” forms, & works Winston St. (UPDATES!)

This went up recenly on Winston St. between Los Angeles St. & Main St. Looks like there is now a “Skid Row Beautification Team”…I mean…wow…this is NEEDED (and appreciated by me personally- I mean, I can die now). Man One (ManOne.com) is the De facto ringleader of this new team, as I understand things- from Crewest Gallery @ 110 Winston Street.  Check out more photos of this going up here: Flickr.com/photos/crewestman

Unfortunately, yesterday morning it got painted over by a Graffiti Removal “crew”.

This sign went up shortly after the brown paint appeared.

Your play, “Skid Row Beautification Team“…what’cha got next? This stretch could use a couple of trees…you know how to find me if you guys wanna supplement the art (which I am hoping will return) with some green- think about it.

(UPDATES!)

And another bit of information in the form of a tweet, from the Los Angeles Office of Community Beautification.
