Reinterpreting Highland Park Mural
As we settle into the new millennium, Highland Park’s residents are actively embracing all the twists, turns and contradictions that history has presented to them and their neighborhood. Evoking the first area rail lines, a new Gold Metro line traverses the area; a master plan in place that aims to revitalize the Arroyo and return it to its natural state; a new and improved completely Audubon Park takes post-urban parkland back to natural basics; and a slew of young artists, galleries and coffee shops together are making Highland Park shine, mixing a neo-hippie culture reminisecent of Charles Lummis with conceptual post-Chicano art.
