The Story behind these murals:

There were (3) gifted youth artists who did a magnificent job in one summer painting over (10) murals around the city in our anti graffiti program. It worked as all of the ugly graffiti strewn walls were converted to these great pieces of art. Only three murals are still up at Bungalow Park Playground, Venice Park Playground and the stage at Uptown School Complex. Kadir Nelson, Gary Gant, William Murphy, Tyrone Hose and Joccu Crouch were the youth who blessed our city with thier talents.
