"Called to Walls is an uplifting, entertaining, heartwarming and deeply intelligent model not only for creating murals but for sparking community dialogue. Unrecalled histories surface to challenge small towns' self images. Tornado survivors rebuild. Multicultural conflicts are resolved. Who could fail to be impressed by the joy and dedication the film displays on the way to imagining a better world?" -- Lucy R. Lippard, author of Get the Message? A Decade of Art for Social Change.
"I love this work as it is exactly my practice from community meetings, to historical and contemporary research, to community engagement and design team formation. In light of all the awful new “branding” and “throw-up” murals here in Los Angeles it made my day and gave me hope about the future of muralism.” -- Judy Baca, muralist, artistic director and founder of Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC).
