Edith Ortega's Neighborhood Mural

The NELA Riverfront Youth Voices student producers created digital murals of their neighborhood and the places that are meaningful to them. Each mural contains 3 to 4 hot spots and a brief description below of these places and their significance to themselves and their community.

Edith shares images of her hot spots in Atwater Village, Elysian Valley, Cypress Park and Silverlake. She offers an example of how many of the students did not limit their hot spots to a pre-defined neighborhood but rather incorporated multiple neighborhoods in their community.
