Tackling Climate Change and Cultural Solidarity Through Art by Re-imagining the World.
soaring for Peace
This mural is a celebration of culture, peace and nature located in Koreatown, a historic ethnic enclave of the Korean American Los Angeles Community. An area of town that has evolved into a multicultural urban center.
The white-naped crane is a Korean symbol of peace. The crane population was in decline; and they were classified as Vulnerable by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature). Their populations have started to flourish again because they have found a home in the Demilitarized Zone of Korea, between the north and south where no humans are allowed. They are a sign that nature can heal and a symbol of reconnection between the north and south. Currently farming communities adjacent to the DMZ are creating conservation efforts to live in harmony and support the cranes.
The mural represents the cranes flying in a V formation. If you stand in the parking lot, you can stand in the middle of the V of the majestic birds in flight.
