Today was the official dedication and ribbon cutting for the mural painted on the side of the Porto's Bakery parking structure on Downey Ave. The mural is the work of Don Lamkin, Liz Moran, Hector Beltran, and Jorge Del Toro. Called “Downey Doodle-icious,” the mural is a fun compilation of Downey's past.
The mural pictures El Taco, Taco Bell, Sir Speedy (an original McDonalds), Apollo, along with many other pieces of Downey's history. Betty Porto attended the dedication and provided pastries for those in attendance.
It was fun to see this art officially become such a part of our downtown area and anticipate other pieces that can add to the future story of Downey.
