Mural drawn by students replaces graffiti in City Heights

Crawford High students spent their summer beautifying the streets of City Heights.

As part of the first pilot project coordinated by the San Diego Cultural Arts Alliance Graffiti Education & Mural Arts Program, 22 students replaced graffiti at the corner of 51st and Polk in City Heights with a hand-drawn mural portraits.

Students painted the mural with help from Crawford teacher Brian Black, local artist Linda Litteral, and community member Lance Reynolds, who purchased the materials needed to create the mural.
