Homeless Crisis

This LA Weekly article & accompanying photo has sparked an interesting conversation across LA this week. I think the assumption is that the woman posing in front of the great Dallas Clayton mural intended to crop out the homeless person sleeping right there.

Not a whole lot, which is why I’m glad this photo seems to have opened up the conversation. Ignoring the problem obviously doesn’t make it go away.

My friend Eddie Zammit schooled me on them, years ago. Having been lucky enough to meet Rone (interviewed) during POW! WOW!

I remember when MEGGS relocated to the City of Angels – adding his unique street art to the cityscape, while pulling off an impressive fine art solo exhibition at Thinkspace. [Read More]
