HOLA on YouTube

HOLA was invited by AEG to create art for a newly remodeled suite. The room was inspired by DTLA and the iconography extended from Griffith Park to MacArthur Park. The central mural was designed and painted by HOLA Alumni and Artist Mentor in Residence, Yair Sarmiento. The surrounding canvases were painting by HOLA youth, ages 11-17, who volunteered their time during their summer breakWe are grateful for the support of the HOLA faculty to complete this project by the very tight deadline. We also received support from HOLA Board Member and world renowned designer, David Dalton. We look forward to revealing the suite to our youth artist in person for a pre-season game on October 7th.
