The San Pedro Waterfront Arts District, in collaboration with Council District 15 and the Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, is excited to announce a mural award to local artist Luis Sanchez. The Arts District received 46 submissions to their Call for Artists, and after a long-consensus driven process, it was decided that the mural project contract would be awarded to Pac Arts resident Luis Sanchez. Born in Mexico City, Luis Sanchez is a fine art painter, sculptor and muralist. Luis notes, “When looking at the history of our our historic theatre, its incredible design and history, I wanted to show a tale of past, present, music, dance movement, celebration of the arts, as well as the diverse culture of San Pedro. I also used some of the applied design aspects from the interior of the Warner Grand.”
