Watch the Hollywood Sign Receive a Fresh Paint Job
Prep work and equipment setup began Monday as crews get ready to give the Hollywood sign a fresh coat of paint.

Crew members could be seen on the live Hollywood sign webcam Monday at the base of the letters setting up for the project. The crew will apply nearly 400 gallons of paint to the 45-foot-high sign over the next eight weeks. Each letter is about 31 to 39 feet across.


You can check in on the live webcam throughout the project duration.
