Art in Motion has received a $1,500 grant from Lexington Directions for its Gardenside project. AIM is working with 11th District councilperson Peggy Henson and neighborhood stakeholders to restore the 1050s-era bus shelter in front of Gardenside Shopping Center on Alexandria Drive. The group would also like to add an art mural to the restored structure and plant a garden around it. See Gardenside page in this website.
- “Murals are about people having an effect on their cities, taking responsibility for their visual and physical environment, leaving records of their lives and concerns, and in the process transforming neighborhoods, reducing vandalism and graffiti and creating new artists out of the youth of our communities” --Glenna Boltuch Avila, Former Director of City Wide Mural Project, Los Angeles
