On behalf of Newmark Merrill Companies, Inc. (NMM), Modern Art Services (MAS) invites local muralists to apply to paint a mural at Crenshaw Imperial Plaza, located in Inglewood, CA. Please note this is an ongoing, temporary exhibition with rotating artists. The existing mural consists of the word “COMMUNITY” located in a highly visible location at the shopping center that serves as a local landmark.

We look forward to continuing to offer this opportunity for local artists to share their work with others
