As the official partner to the Special Olympics World Games, Toyota has dedicated three murals to the Special Olympics which portray Special Olympics athletes and related historic events. The murals were dedicated last Tuesday, July 7, and were part of Toyota’s Share the Journey Campaign.
Each mural was painted by a different artist: one by David Flores, which can be seen at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum; one by Cryptik located on South Figueroa Street; and one Kent Twitchell found on South Hope Street. These gorgeous murals are now part of the LA landscape and will showcase the journeys of Special Olympics athletes for years to come.
These murals are a throwback to the original Los Angeles murals painted for the 1984 Olympic Games. This year’s Special Olympics World Games will be held from July 25 through August 2. Toyota says that the murals are both a dedication to the Special Olympics athletes and a tribute to LA’s storied history of outdoor art.
