A lot of local folks have their eyes on this mural called the What I See Can Be Me mural on the Nickel in Skid Row. We, as a community, are looking into ways to revitalize this mural and the surrounding area in the coming years. These videos by Michael Blaze of the Skid Row Photography Club give a poignant insight into the history that surrounds this wall.
So far, we have reached out to SPARC numerous times to work on restoration, which is what they do- this is their mural. We are waiting for them to come to the table and help get this piece restored and refreshed. There is still a fear about Skid Row, there is still a stigma about doing anything here in our precious public space. They have said so much to me about getting involved here. I have faith this will change soon.
