Mobile Mural Lab at the Zoo

Nov 4, 2013
Spotlight Category: Alumni

Alumni David Russell and Roberto del Hoyo of Mobile Mural Lab take their public art to the L.A. Zoo.


The Mobile Mural Lab

Roberto Del Hoyo (MFA ’11) + David Russell (MFA ’11)= Mobile Mural Lab

MOBIL-MURAL-TEXT-PIC

 

The Mobile Mural Lab (MML) was conceived as a public art project responding to a Los Angeles sign ordinance that did not discriminate between commercial signs and fine art murals. This political circumstance positioned mural production on private property to be illegal. We thought a mobile wall surface with an interior space to educate was the perfect legal loophole for visual expression within the public realm. Since 2010 the department of city planning has been collaborating with muralists, public artists and concerned citizens to draft a new mural painting ordinance. As a result, the newly drafted ordinance will go through City Council, and hopefully by 2013 Angelinos will be able to lawfully produce murals on private property.

The MML has evolved into a mobile art studio serving as a space for mural education and production. We teach the history of murals specific to Los Angeles as well as traditional and contemporary mural painting techniques. We collaborate with artists, organizations and communities to facilitate interactive mural painting programs, events and workshops.
