The California Historical Society presents "¡Murales Rebeldes! L.A. Chicano/a Murals under Siege," exploring murals from the Chicana/o Movement of the 60s and 70s. These murals were a means of expressing pride and frustration and speaking out against the status quo. Many were censored and destroyed, and the artists' work almost lost forever...until now. Through photography, sketches, related works and ephemera, those voices have been revitalized.
This exhibition considers LA’s rich mural history, the role of Chicana/o artists in creating this cultural legacy, and the fate of destroyed works along the way. Featuring works by David Botello, Barbara Carrasco, Yreina D. Cervántez, Roberto Chavez, Ernesto de la Loza, Wayne Alaniz Healy, Alma López, Sergio O’Cadiz Moctezuma and George Yepes.
