Our Treasured mural, Para Las Rosas / For the Roses created by Juana Alicia needs your help! Sadly, over the years the mural's colors have faded but Juana Alicia has agreed to restore and preserve this historic work of art using new techniques and longer lasting paints.
This month, Juana Alicia has given us all a glimpse of the future mural by restoring the section depicting comedian Lenny Bruce. Lenny Bruce was only one of the many great artists who recorded at 855 when it was the original location of the Fantasy Records studio from 1959 to 1964.

WE CONTINUE TO HAVE A HEALTHY DISTRUST OF AUTHORITY. THE FACT REMAINS THAT WE ARE IN A PUBLIC HEALTH EMERGENCY, AND WE SUPPORT SCIENTIFICALLY-BACKED MEASURES TO SAVE LIVES, REDUCE THE STRESS ON EMERGENCY RESPONSE SYSTEMS, AND GET BACK TO SEEING LIVE THEATRE. WE ARE ALL VACCINATED. YOU SHOULD BE TOO.
