Save The Watts Towers Art Center

As advocates for the preservation of Art and Culture, the undersigned request that Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the Los Angeles City Council immediately remove the Watts Towers Art Center (WTAC) and the Charles Mingus Youth Art Center (CMYAC) from the city's list of art facilities that are slated for privatization.  The Watts Towers Art Campus provides invaluable art education, cultural programming and open green space to under-served youth and community members as well as providing a cultural destination to the diverse national and international tourists that visit the Simon Rodia Watts Towers.  Cultural Tourism is the leading industry in Los Angeles.  Attracting over 300,000 visitors annually, the Watts Towers are designated as a U.S. National Historic Landmark, California Historical Landmark and a Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument.  The Watts Towers Cultural Art Park needs to remain in the public domain.  Please join us to stop Cultural Genocide by asking Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and the City Council to remove the WTAC and the CMYAC from privatization by signing your name below.
