The AULA Alumni Council hosted a Graffiti and Mural Walk for Antioch alumni on Sunday, May 20, 2018 in the Downtown Los Angeles Arts District.
LA Art Tours led the group, sharing history and insight into the graffiti and mural scene of Downtown LA, which has undergone a resurgence in recent years with both local and international artists adding to the urban canvases, some lasting for only for days and others preserved for the generations.
“We not only explored galleries and murals around the arts district, we also got a history of how art and the art scene have evolved in this ever-changing part of the city,” said Cyndi Hubach, MA in Urban Sustainability alumna. “And the alums on the tour came from many programs and eras, so we got a history of AULA as well!”
In addition to viewing vibrant art, the sold-out tour stopped at a few unique locations including; the Arts District Co-op, a trendy market with live music events and contemporary vendors and artists; Art Share LA, which provides an open space for artists, students, to teach, learn, live, showcase, perform, and connect; and Cleveland Art, a creative design store which showcases repurposed home furnishings & art made from salvaged materials.
