The team that saved Chicken Boy from destruction and had it mounted on a Highland Park art studio will receive a 2010 Governor’s Historic Preservation award on Friday. The leader of that team is artist Amy Inouye, who also designed my Wilshire Boulevard book (and many others for Angel City Press.) Joe DeMarie and KPCC host Madeleine Brand will also get awards for preserving the Bubeshko Apartments in Silver Lake, which they own. More at Blogdowntown.
