Geoff McFetridge just completed a mural at the historic West LA Courthouse skate spot. The mural is part of a greater project that reopened and repaired the spot, with Nike SB, local government and skaters working together to have it back open to public. Juxtapoz' Sam Graham went and snapped some shots this weekend. Public art, public space, skating... perfect. We asked Geoff to talk about the project, about both the mural and the skate spot itself, and in his own words, this is what he told us.

Of course both those things are illegal but what if those street signs were pieces of art and worth something more than just a hidden collection of felonies on your bedroom wall? Ryan McGinness has created just that congruently with New York City’s Department of Transportation in his new project Signs, 2014.
