ACLU & LACAN
Touchy over an Artists Signage Project
Row issues heated up when an artist took to the streets and created
and posted several signs in the Historic Core District. The municipal
appearing signs clearly demonstrate the frustration over recent
decisions and the disconnected approach taken by the ACLU, Mayor
Villaraigosa, and homeless advocates, namely LACAN (Los Angeles
Community Action Network) and Alice Callahan.
The artist, Richard McDowell, stated, "Nobody seems to be
addressing the drug and narcotic use. This is the biggest problem
the 10 signs posted a few read "Drugs Sold Here", "Antonovitch
Crack Corner", "ACLU Crack Haven", "LA CAN
removed the sign shortly after they were installed saying the
signs were misleading.
