Civic Art follows the rarely witnessed, intricate process of one of the most mysterious and controversial art forms affecting the public at large. This documentary entertainingly delves into the requisite political journeys navigated by Los Angeles-based artists as they wrestle with myriad social sensitivities, budgetary constraints and technical variables. Attempting to stay true to their art process and aesthetic tendencies, these artists negotiate with the government and the neighborhoods to produce ambitious, permanent, large-scale art projects. With the intent to alleviate graffiti and amplify use of shared public spaces, these projects explore the extensive social power of art within four neighborhoods in South Los Angeles County. Civic Art Works highlights the vital, complicated and often misunderstood efforts behind artwork made with and for the public that often prompts questions such as: "Why is that there?", "Who made that?" and "Am I paying for it?" The answers are both surprising and illuminating in this rare peek behind an ever-present bureaucratic curtain within a U.S democratic culture.

I just came back from seeing this movie, twice! Yes, it is that good. The highlight in this film was definitely Fausto Fernandez and Brian Howe. Fausto Fernandez gave such a convincing and emotional performance in a character who is so sensitive. Brian Howe was really good at bringing to life such a character. I was really amazed at how good he was playing

Fausto Fernandez kept this movie train moving along while Brian Howe was in his element. It’s not a film that is going to have you guessing what is going to happen next but it's enjoyable from start to finish. It's a holiday

Absolute masterclass in sound editing, not to mention the campy script, brilliant acting, soundtrack, and set design!
