Muralist Susan Cervantes knows the real work in creating public art often comes long after the paintbrushes have been put away. For years the 56-year-old artist, who has rendered Latino and feminist-inspired murals throughout this city's working-class Mission District, has fought what she says is intellectual copyright theft by firms that used her work for posters and ads without permission. But now Cervantes is up against perhaps the biggest opponent of all: the Internet and Bill Gates.

What began as a safety crusade for stop signs and security cameras took a turn for the beautiful Saturday, with the unveiling in Los Angeles of a mural that has helped a West Adams neighborhood discover itself. The event was held on Budlong Avenue just south of Washington Boulevard, where a series of shooting deaths two years ago inspired the creation of a neighborhood association.

Baby Liborio Gonzalez Jr. was back in his mother's arms Friday, thanks to a late-night 911 tip from relatives of a woman suspected of randomly abducting the infant as he slept at White Memorial Medical Center. The suspect, Susan Cervantes, 39, of Boyle Heights, who police said took the baby from his mother's bedside, was arrested without incident on suspicion of kidnaping. Police said Cervantes has daughters of her own but took the infant simply out of desperation to have another baby.
