ARTISTS IN MOTION Clockwise from right: Kristy Sandoval with “Mi


Vida, Mi Cultura”; a striking portrait by Levi; Levi Ponce, who works by day job as a special effects artist for a production company.


Meanwhile, Kristy is also getting some career traction. “Since the ban was overturned, I’ve gotten three paid jobs—all from people who have seen my murals here in Pacoima.” She also just commenced work as a teaching artist for her artist-in-residency with Urban Arts Partnership at the Arts Theater Entertainment School at Cesar Chavez Learning Academies, integrating art into a ninth-grade math and English class. The muralists are thrilled the ban on


murals on privately owned buildings in LA has been lifted. It not only makes them “street legal,” but at least for Levi, the ruling is helping him accomplish yet another goal: “We’re the entertainment capital of the world—we have the world’s best artists here. I want us all to bring public art back to LA.” 


PACOIMA MURAL SPOTTING


For those who prefer a guided tour of the murals, both Kristy and Levi work with the Public Art Initiative, a project of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley, which hosts Pacoima Murals Walking Tours. The two-and-a-half-hour walks are held on Saturday mornings once a month and cost $15 to $20. For more information, go to themuseumsfv.org.
