Last month curator LoveGalo and artist Sergio Robleto were commissioned by the owners of First Street Pool & Billiard, Marco Cordova and Lila Gallarza, to paint a mural. The creatives were inspired by the exhibit ¡Murales Rebeldes!, at LA Plaza last year. Galo and Robleto decided on a tribute to pioneers of the mural movement from the 1970’s and 1980’s, the collective Los Dos Streetscapers from artist David Botello and Wayne Healy. Their work is seen daily in Boyle Heights. On the corner of Soto and Cesar Chavez is the mural, El Corrido de Boyle Heights (The Ballad of Boyle Heights) painted by Streetscapers.
