Visiting Los Angeles? Be sure to visit the jaw-dropping RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 13 cast mural from artist Antonio Rael, celebrating the historic year of the iconic franchise.
The mural, unveiled today, featured special appearances by Season 13 winner Symone and runner-up Kandy Muse.
Guests who visit the mural can upload their photo to their story, reel, or Instagram using the hashtag #DragRaceFYCMural and tag @RuPaulsDragRace and @lalgbtcenter. For each post with the hashtag and tags, VH1 will make a donation, up to a total donation of $5,000, to the Los Angeles LGBT Center.
Following the unveiling of the mural, Symone and Kandy volunteered at the Los Angeles LGBT Center for their “Pride Program” which helps to feed those in need throughout the community.
The mural is located at 8180 Melrose Ave Los Angeles, CA 90046 at Melrose and North La Jolla Avenue. The mural will be on display until August 30th.
“The mural, which took three weeks to complete, was painted freehand and represents not only the queens from Season 13, but also freedom of expression,” said artist Antonio Rael. “It’s a huge honor to be a part of this given how much love I have for ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ and all that it stands for (and I felt particularly blessed while I was painting as local WeHo residents cheered me on!). I am hoping this mural will encourage people to create and express themselves in their own unique way, and that this art brings joy to people, especially in these trying times. It is just so special to be part of the LGBTQIA community.”
