Felipe Sanchez fell in love with Murals early in his life. Based on this passion, he found himself volunteering to work on them and with those who support their creation and eventually working with a legend in the mural making world in Los Angeles Judy Baca. Under the auspices of SPARC, the Social and Public Art Resource Center, founded by Judy, she, Felipe and a team of artists, recently worked to restore their iconic mural on the concrete channel surrounding the river in North Hollywood, one of longest murals in the world, the Great Wall of Los Angeles. Come hear Felipe tell the stories from his work to restore this incredible Los Angeles landmark.
