“Build Bridges, Paint Walls is a clear example of what can happen with a common interest—we can build great things. From a small seed like street art, we can build bridges like the ones that today are taking us to exchange culture and knowledge, opening the minds of everyone involved in the project.”

Admission is free, but the event is a fundraiser for Las Fotos Project, and they will receive 100% of all donations collected. The opening night festivities include a performance by California punk band Deseos Primitivos and a DJ set by Skwirl Sauce. The corner dive bar, Licha’s Bar and Grill, will be open, serving beer sponsored by Angel City Brewery and sparkling mineral water by Topo Chico.
