Famed Los Angeles Graffiti Crew Creates AIDS Awareness Billboard

This article was reported by San Diego Gay & Lesbian News.

AHF planned to enlarge each piece of art to billboard size and post the art at the corner of Santa Monica Boulevard and Highland Avenue in Hollywood, Calif.

Galo "Make One" Canote and Sergio "Doc43" Rueda, founders of the Second To None (STN) graffiti crew, created the second piece of art for the billboard, which AHF will display in time for World AIDS Day on December 1.
