The Mural Conservancy of Los Angeles (MCLA) was created by a coalition of artists, public art advocates, city of Los Angeles and state of California public officials, and restoration specialists. MCLA built long-term programs to retain mural arts as a part of Los Angeles’ cultural legacy and establish murals as a significant part of our city’s cultural heritage. It advocates for the rights of both artists and public art, and works with artist to support the integrity of their work. MCLA promotes local artist and public murals in order to sustain Los Angeles as one of the great mural capitals in the United States.
