LACMA garage ~ Miracle Mile

8:19 PM PDT on July 5, 2006

This three story garage was demolished last fall. Lying deep down in the basement were countless murals by different artists. Murals, tags, graffiti, pictures, self portraits, etc. were all down on the bottom two levels which unfortunately now lie in street art historical rubble.

Most famous were the ones done in 2000 by San Franciscans Barry McGee and Margaret Kilgallen. Over the course of a week, the two artists turned the garage into a gallery. Here are some snaps of their beautiful work.

Kilgallen painted a great number of her edgy murals and ironic street art around San Francisco, but most have been sadly painted over. She died from breast cancer at the young age of 33.

The above is just another amazing unknown Los Angeles artist. If you know who did it, drop a comment.
