Save Elliott Smith’s Figure 8 Wall

September 10, 2010

This is what the wall use to look like...

Elliott Smith fans have launched a fantastic grassroots campaign to help save the Figure 8 wall on Sunset Boulevard in Silverlake (East Hollywood), Los Angeles, California. The wall served as the album cover for Smith’s Figure 8 album, released in April 2000. Smith tragically died October 21, 2003 and since then the wall have been used as a makeshift memorial. The wall became a target for unrelated graffiti, and was restored to its original Figure 8 design several years ago. Since then it has once again been covered with unrelated gang graffiti as well as fan messages. Fans want to restore the wall back to its original state again and make it an official memorial, even adding a plaque there. The cost to restore the mural and to get paint for it, with the permission of Solutions Audio-Video Repair, is $500. The Save Figure 8 organization is currently accepting donations and is halfway to its goal.
