You Are The Star
Project Area: Hollywood
Project: You Are The Star Mural Conservation
Project Location: Wilcox Avenue at Hollywood Boulevard
Project Type: CRA/LA Initiated
Thomas Suriya’s “You Are The Star” mural portrays a number of Hollywood screen legends as a movie theatre audience. Facing Wilcox Avenue in Hollywood, this mural gives all passersby the opportunity to inadvertently become part of the show and provide entertainment for these film icons.
Originally created in 1983, "You Are The Star" suffered deleterious effects from its environment over the years. Working with the Hollywood Arts Council, CRA/LA provided funding assistance for conservation of this well-known mural. Suriya re-visited his work to complete all necessary renovations. A protective coating was applied over the mural.
