Inglewood Stories - A Mural by Michael Massenburg, 2014.
Inglewood Stories is a mural exploring the cultures, histories and hopes of our city.  Drawing on Library archives, photos and letters, artist Michael Massenburg reflects Inglewood's diversity and working and family lives through images and text.  The colorful permanent mural is acrylic paint over photo transfer on vinyl sections.  The 30 foot by 30 foot mural is designed for the Main Library's Atrium.  His public art asks: What is your Inglewood Story?
