Description
The living city, Koreatown, 1991, H & K Supermarket, exterior, 124 North Western Avenue (between 1st Street and Beverly Boulevard), Koreatown. L.A.'s cultural diversity is represented through architecture, including the Watts Towers, Mann's Chinese Theater, Olvera Street, and Beverly Hills. Freeways twist and turn throughout the mural, linking the various neighborhoods. There are also hundreds of miniature portraits, among them such eccentric personalities as a Domino's Pizza man, a pimp in a feathered hat, a graffiti artist, a black Bart Simpson (a TV cartoon character), and a homeless man who regularly hung out near the mural during its painting. Acrylic, 16' x 94', by Sandra Drinning, assisted by Julio Crespo, Masakela Poles, Samara Tanzaws, Esther Kwan Tak, Sue Griffin, and Lesley Grant. Sponsored by Social and Public Art Resource Center.-- Dunitz, Street gallery, rev. 2nd ed., p. 79, #49.
