Hollywood sign to get a makeover to commemorate its centennial in 2023

A much-needed makeover is on the way for the Hollywood sign, which will befit its status as a key Tinseltown landmark. A pressure washer was used to clean the sign’s surface, and some rust was removed, before workers began to apply 250 gallons (946 liters) of primer and white paint to spruce up the sign ahead of next year’s centennial celebration.

The sign was originally built in 1923 to promote a property development called Hollywoodland. After decades of neglect, the original sign was shortened to “Hollywood” and then replaced entirely with a redesigned one in 1978. In the Hollywood Hills above Los Angeles, the 45-foot-tall (13-meter) sign is repainted every 10 years.
