Now, we're asking for your help! The LAHC is calling on the community for donations to bring this artwork to completion. 

With a donation of $250 donation or more, your name or company name will be added to a bronze plaque posted near the artwork. The deadline is September 1, 2019 to have your name listed on the plaque. All donations are welcome and tax deductible, and will be used for materials or associated placement costs.
