The only hot spot I have in my mural is Elysian Valley. I selected this hot spot because I grew up in this neighborhood and I was raised here. I began by highlighting the EV Park as an example of Elysian Valley. I also included Nomad Gallery, the L.A. River and Elysian Valley United.
I never knew Nomad Gallery was in my neighborhood and it is really cool. It is important because it's a big part of my neighborhood and it tries to bring the community together with events and art. They also make t-shirts at Nomad. The L.A. River also has a lot of meaning for us. My favorite part of my mural is the pictures I took of my friends and where I used to do my homework at Elysian Valley United.
