At 2,754 feet, The Great Wall of Los Angeles is one of the longest murals in the world. Done by artist Judith Baca and located near Valley College, the mural depicts, panel by panel, the history of California. This Saturday, the mural is getting a big ol' "bubble bath," and the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) needs volunteers to pitch in with some elbow grease to get the job done.

The big scrub down happens Saturday, June 11th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Volunteers are asked to email or call ahead to (310) 822-9560 ex. 10 to confirm participation. If you are going to help out, you'll need to wear pants and closed toed shoes, and you'll probably want to bring drinking water, sunscreen, a hat, and either a brown bag lunch or cash for a food truck.
