Going up and down the coast is already a different visual experience, thanks to volunteers who took to the beaches yesterday to begin painting all 158 lifeguard towers in L.A. County for the "Summer of Color" public art project. You'll see five colors: yellow, rumba orange, sweat pea, Toronto blue, and crocus petal purple. This is just the first step--by mid-May, color murals painted by children and volunteers across the region will be installed and stay up through October.
