David ‘Lebo’ LeBatard Inaugurates Downtown Hollywood Mural ProjectSaturday, August 18, 7pm – Hollywood Mural Project at Hollywood Boulevard and Harrison Street between 21st Avenue and Young Circle, Hollywood

Downtown Hollywood will unveil acclaimed local artist David “Lebo” Le Batard’s new jazz-inspired mural to launch the district’s new curated outdoor mural program. Aptly dubbed the “Downtown Hollywood Mural Project,” the initiative is slated to kick-off at the district’s monthly ArtWalk where celebrated cartoon artist David “Lebo” Le Batard will unveil Be-Bop Into Outer Space. His inaugural, multi-dimensional mural spans 124 feet – the first of several pieces by established, local contemporary artists designed for at least 10 properties. Inspired by geometric abstraction, color harmony and 1950s jazz, Lebo’s contribution to the emerging cityscape will add a visual arts component to Mayor Peter Bober’s rapidly growing music initiative. Be-Bop Into Outer Space will enliven part of the historic Great Southern Building Complex (southwest corner of Hollywood Boulevard and Young Circle). The Downtown Hollywood Mural Project will be centralized in the Live Music District, running along Hollywood Boulevard and Harrison Street between 21st Avenue and Young Circle.
