Art or Ad? L.A.’s Mural Law Written in Gray Ink
In 2002, the city of Los Angeles placed a moratorium banning murals on private property. As a result of the ban, murals became illegal in Los Angeles. Many up-and-coming artists were forced to take down their murals or have their artwork painted over.
Once known as the “mural capital of the world,” Los Angeles became a place where murals were no longer welcomed. The mural ban was intended as a measure to regulate illegal advertisements.
In 2013, the Los Angeles City Council took a step toward restoring power to artists by voting to overturn a citywide ban on murals and introducing a new ordinance that separated advertisements from murals.
