The got a lot of fanfare when they debuted last fall. Now that they have become a part of our everyday landscape, it’s time to weigh in. This week’s Readers' Choice Poll asks you to vote for your favorite.

Is your favorite Shepard Fairey's “Peace Elephant”? The Obama "Hope" poster pioneer brings his signature style to a 70-by-106-foot portion of the library's west parking lot wall. Fairey says peace has been a recurring theme in his art since the Iraq War began.

How about the mural by Kenny Scharf on the north wall, overlooking West Hollywood Park? The Brooklyn-based painter's work depicts a fusion of cartoon characters.

Maybe it's the obscure blue print on the south-facing wall by Los Angeles street artist Marquis Lewis (Retna)? The Los Angeles street artist says his work was based on the Salman Rushdie quote: “Literature is where I go to explore the highest and lowest of place in human society and in the human spirit, where I hope to find not absolute truth but the truth of the tale, of the imagination and of the heart."

Cast your vote below, then tell us why you voted the way you did in the comment section.

Voting ends at 5 p.m. on Friday. Your Patch editor will determine the winner based on a combination of poll results and the number and enthusiasm of the reader comments. We’ll announce the winner Saturday morning.
