Rosendahl: Murals as Art in Venice


From The Argonaut via Curbed LA:

Los Angeles City Councilman Bill Rosendahl introduced a motion to his colleagues June 1 that would create an ordinance to specifically identify murals as art instead of signs, as the city currently considers them.

“I’m putting this motion in because I strongly believe in separating art from commercial advertising,” the councilman told The Argonaut the day before he submitted his motion. “(Murals) are artistic expression that are often intertwined with culture and history, and they deserve to be viewed separately from commercial signage.”

The Venice Neighborhood Council unanimously backed a resolution May 24 to encourage Rosendahl to submit the motion to the council.
