How do artists propose to soften a mass of new retaining walls along Sepulveda Bl.? See http://tinyurl.com/yyl2cjn

For years, pedestrians, bicyclists and drivers have passed the retaining walls on either side of Homedale Dr., east of the I-405 freeway, and seen a mass of flat concrete. The Greenmeme artists saw an opportunity to soften the gray mass and engage passersby with a bit of local history.

Greenmeme was selected by the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs to add an art component when the two walls are reconstructed later this year.

The walls, which will total over 1,200 feet in length, sit on City of Los Angeles land between Montana Ave. and Sunset Bl. (To better identify the walls, the I-405 project team refers to them as 1720 and 1730, with 1720 being the wall north of Homedale Dr.)
