  • Great Wall of Los Angeles
    The Great Wall of Los Angeles, the world's longest mural (2754 feet) can be found along the L.A. River/Tujunga Wash flood control by Grant High School. Begun in 1974 by San Fernando Valley native, Dr. Judith Baca, Founder and Artistic Director for Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC), it was painted over five summers by mostly at risk youths between the ages of 14 and 21 to help beautify and restore the river. The Great Wall is a landmark pictorial representation of the history of ethnic peoples of California from prehistoric times to the 1950's. Production of the Great Wall has involved the support of many government agencies, community organizations, businesses, corporations, foundations, and individuals. With accompanying park and bike trails, the Great Wall hosts thousands of visitors every year.
