Repainted Michteltorena Stair Candy mural

Silver Lake - The Micheltorena stairway mural in Silver Lake was restored Thursday by its original artists after being vandalized and whitewashed in April.

The "Stair Candy" mural, on the south side of Sunset Boulevard at Micheltorena Street, was painted in 2015 by local artists Corinne Carey, Carla O'Brien and Mandon Bassi.
