Long Beach Art Mural

We have just reicvied this email.

"Hi,
I was wondering if you knew of anyone who would be willing to do a mural for free down in Long Beach. There is this hideous wall at our dead end and I wasn't sure if anyone would be willing to take it on as a community service project of some sort. The wall belongs to Executive Towers but they don't do anything with it... some bricks are broken... it looks horrible and its right next to our beach entrance so it's definitely somewhere it would be noticed. I would think it should be something ocean like or beachy... its a fairly long wall if it was continued all the way down to the beach. Anyway... I thought it would look nice and be an interesting project. Please let me know if you have any idea of who would be interested and I would be willing to help get permission from the buildings down here :)
Thanks
Nicole"
