apeyes los angeles mural project

Scott tells me about a cool project he's been working on through LEAP (Leadership Education for Asian Pacifics)... He and his fellow interns have created a pamphlet and website documenting the hard work and community empowerment put into AAPI murals in the Los Angeles area, and their role as a part of the community's history, culture and identity. There are literally hundreds of murals in the Los Angeles, each holding a special significance to their respective communities. So where are the murals that reflect the API community experience? This project aims to increase awareness, visibility and knowledge of existing API murals in Southern California: APeyes: Catching A Glimpse of API Murals in Los Angeles. And you can continue the community dialogue on murals at this blog: apeyes.blogspot.com. Very cool stuff, and very good work.
