galleries, each wall slowly transform into the art district. >> this is why we decided to buy our house here, we peeked over the alley and thought it was cool. >> it was just trash, graffiti, and it's become safer i our opinion. people just come out and park and walk-up and down here. >> they believe it's about more than what is on the wall. >> it touches the whole community and that's the whole point of doing the work on the street, and it's not about me but about what i am leaving here. it elicited so many smiles and happy feelings that it's a project that can't stop, and it has to keep going because the joy it brings all these people is immeasurable.
