Located: Williams Furniture Store, San Fernando Road and Van Nuys in Pacoima, CA.
Funding: City of Los Angeles Public Works Neighborhood Matching Funds Grant
Details: Commissioned by Pacoima Beautiful, in conjunction with Project Grad, UCLA, San Fernando High School and the Jet Propulsion Lab. Susan Krieg was brought into the project three weeks before a visual was required to be presented to the City of Los Angeles for approval. Pacoima Beautiful provided historic reference material and Susan designed and got the proposal passed.
Susan mentored 4 UCLA students in mural painting and art direction. Twelve San Fernando High School students assisted in painting the mural. The imagery tells the history, culture and notable elements of Pacoima including: peach, pear, olive, walnut and orange groves, a mission, Whiteman Airpark, notable personalities Richie Valens and Mary Helen Ponce.
