A new mural painted by women will be unveiled today in Pacoima at 3 p.m.
The mural project was headed by artist Kristy Sandoval and involved a large group of women who helped throughout the first two weeks of the new year. I even stopped by one day to work on some of the corn lilies.
The owners of Stylesville Barbershop generously donated the 30-by-12 wall space and let Kristy have creative freedom. The tribute to African-American activist Assata Shakur, along with her powerful words, “A woman’s place is in the struggle,” can be seen when driving west on Van Nuys Boulevard, just past Pala Aveneue. Pictures will be coming soon.
The exact address for today’s unveiling is 13161 Van Nuys Boulevard in Pacoima. See real change in real time.
