Makeover for Long Beach mural

LONG BEACH, Calif. The mural on the Long Beach arena, called "Ocean Planet," is being refurbished.

The mural is the work of environmentalist artist /*Robert Wyland*/ and was dedicated on July 9, 1992.

At 116,000 square feet, the mural is the world's largest and is in the /*Guinness Book of Records*/.

The mural depicts migratory gray whales and other aquatic life that can be found in the waters off Long Beach.

The /*Wyland Foundation*/ has already begun restoring the mural to its original condition. Work will continue into next week.
