The Palms Beautification Project is engaging the community and leaving a lasting impressing by painting unique murals on 10 utility boxes around the neighborhood. Local artists and students from Hamilton High School engaged the neighborhood by collecting stories from the stakeholders about the history, culture, and landmarks of the neighborhood. They took these stories to create designs that reflect a distinctive “feel” for anyone who lives, works, or visits Palms.
This collaborative effort between Palms Neighborhood Council, local artists, a local nonprofit (LA Commons), Council District 10, and Hamilton High School has created jobs, provided training and after school services for students, engaged stakeholders, and helped to beautify the neighborhood.
