Just in time for its 100th anniversary next year, the Hollywood sign received a fresh coat of paint. Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti inspected the progress on Oct. 26, even helping to touch up a section of the sign. The famed L.A. landmark was originally built as “HOLLYWOODLAND” in 1923 to advertise a housing development, and it is now owned by the city and overseen by the Hollywood Sign Trust. Sherwin-Williams donated the paint for the project.
