ACME (all-city mural endeavor)
LADADSpace is spearheading the ACME (all-city mural endeavor), dedicated to the creation of murals in downtown Los Angeles. ACME seeks to cultivate the perception of the city’s walls as a massive gallery featuring diverse work by local artists and muralists from around the world. ACME works to:
- Insure muralists are compensated for their work
- Opportunities for new works are made available for both emerging local artists and established artists of international stature (ACME has created a residency for visiting artists)
- Insure the concerns of property owners and the letter and spirit of the mural city ordinance are respected
- Pair at-risk youth (particularly those convicted of tagging or graffiti offenses) with established artists as apprentices
We are using our long-standing relationships with local property owners in the neighborhood to organize the addition of 23 new murals in the neighborhood.
