In a pioneering effort to provide a cleaner and safer pedestrian environment, the South Park Business Improvement (BID) presented the City of Los Angeles with a new approach to aggressively address the backlog of problems with city sidewalks, returning safety and accessibility to city residents and visitors. With dedicated assistance from Councilman José Huizar, the Los Angeles Board of Public Works, and the Bureau of Engineering and Bureau of Street Services, the BID was able to fund an entire pilot program, bringing 800 sidewalks locations up to City safety specifications and meeting the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

Last Friday, December 5, artists DevNgosha began work on a transformative mural on a parking structure in the South Park neighborhood of Downtown Los Angeles, located at 1111 S. Hope St. Artists Devin Liston & Gosha Levochkin formed a dynamic collaboration in 2012. Devin’s past work has centered in portraiture and is categorized stylistically as realistic. Gosha’s work explores the urban landscape and is lyrical in form, created largely in the medium of watercolor.
