Street Art on Melrose

Utility-Box-Art

If you’ve been walking on Melrose Ave. between Fairfax Ave. and Highland Ave., you’ve probably noticed the recent artwork on many of the utility boxes, such as the piece on the right by Los Angeles Artist Jamie Janett Graden.

 

These are in addition to the various murals that have been here for a long time (as shown in the video from KCET, below) and doesn’t even include the many art galleries on Melrose.


And there is more street art on the way, as described in these articles in Curbed L.A. (A Big Stretch of Melrose Will Become a Street Art Museum) and laist (Melrose Could Turn Into A Virtual ‘Street Art Museum’).

It is all art, and that means that each of us will have our own opinion on what we like and what we don’t like. But it is one of the things that makes Melrose Melrose.
