Painters at Venice Art Walls Commemorate Conn. Shooting Victims

Comments Off on Painters at Venice Art Walls Commemorate Conn. Shooting Victims

Artists pulled out the spray cans Saturday and turned the Venice Art Walls on Venice Beach into a memorial for the victims of the mass school shooting in Connecticut.

The installation showed young children on heavenly clouds with the script “From the City of Angels to the Angels of Connecticut.” About five people worked on the project Saturday for more than six hours, said Roger Lopez, 38, of the STP Foundation that oversees graffiti art on the walls. The names and ages of the victims of the Dec. 14 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn., were painted on both sides of the mural.

A gunman shot and killed 20 young students and six adults at the school before killing himself in one of the most horrific mass shootings in U.S. history.
