Any trip to L.A. has to include this stunning new Jackie Robinson mural 

There's a lot of great art you can see in Los Angeles. There's the historically famous LACMA and Getty Center. There are art galleries galore and artwalks and spaces devoted to artwork inspired by pop culture. But the city just got a big boost thanks to this new Jackie Robinson mural.

Made by artist JC Ro, it can be found on the side of a shoe store at 1724 Sunset Blvd. in Echo Park -- just a short trip away from Dodger Stadium. Ro is known for his cubist-inspired designs, often featuring athletes like Michael Jordan and Kobe Bryant.

Though it's not on the side of a building, he also made this gorgeous painting of Ken Griffey Jr:

Ro's Robinson mural is just one of many great pieces portraying the baseball and civil rights icon. There's a Robinson mural in Philadelphia made by artist David McShane:

Fluke made a gorgeous, colorful design marking Robinson's time with the Montreal Royals:

Of course there is art depicting his time at the UCLA stadium that bears his name:

And there are two murals near the site of the Brooklyn Dodgers' Ebbets Field:
