I admit. Usually when I’m on the Expo Line, I’ve got my face buried in my phone or an old Dr. Who book. But last week, I was staring out the window and I noticed a beautiful mural of swans on the side of a building.

Doing a little digging, I discovered the mural has been there since August and was painted by famed Korean muralist Faith47. It’s not just a beautiful mural, it’s also part of a plan to beautify and revitalize a community.

So here’s a quick Eyes on the Street quiz. The first person who can tell me where this mural is wins a Streetsblog t-shirt. Honors system in place, no using the Internet.
