Photos: The Art of Shepard Fairey and Others on L.A.'s 'Berlin Wall'

We need to hear from you.
Today, put a dollar value on the trustworthy reporting you rely on all year long. The local news you read here every day is crafted for you, but right now, we need your help to keep it going. In these uncertain times, your support is even more important. We can't hold those in power accountable and uplift voices from the community without your partnership. Thank you.

Earlier this morning, we showed you the video of The L.A. Wall being torn down. Now, here are photos of the art before it was destroyed in celebration of the Berlin Wall's falling 20 years ago.

The Wall Project, which brought 10-pieces of the real Berlin Wall to Wilshire Boulevard with new artwork by Berlin-based and local artists (it's still on display through Saturday, see the first two photos above) and the temporary L.A. Wall last night (the remaining photos), was mainly the product of the Culver City-based Wende Museum Cold War Archive.

L.A. Wall aritsts included Thierry Noir, Shepard Fairey, iLia Anossov, Asylm, Jaime “Vyal” Reyes, Axis, Jennifer Puno, Brigid LaBonge, Timo Fahler, Meleko Mokgosi and Judi Jensen.
