Drive around the city of Los Angeles and you're likely to notice the ornate and colorful murals that occupy public spaces. But maybe you didn't know that since 2003, new public murals have been prohibited.

This week the Los Angeles city council is expected to debate the regulation, and many are hoping that they will overturn the ban.
