LA's iconic Hollywood sign gets makeover ahead of centennial celebration

HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- One of Los Angeles' most iconic landmarks, the Hollywood sign, is getting a make-over. Crews power washed it, grinded the rust away and are now adding a new coat of paint. The Hollywood Sign Trust oversees the sign and said it was time to get this done.

"The last time that we painted the sign was in 2012 and paint lasts about 10 years," said Jeff Zarrinnam, Hollywood Sign Trust chair. "The Hollywood sign is just not a symbol of a place, it's a symbol of the entertainment industry."
