Panel Discussion – Siqueiros Mural
It seems like everywhere one turns in LA this fall, there are events and exhibits about "Siqueiros", David Alfaro Siqueiros, one of the three great Mexican muralists. There is an exhibit at the Autry about the artist, an exhibit of his art at the Museum of Latin American Art in Long Beach and local galleries are also exhibiting his work. The City of Los Angeles has a history with this famous artist; we have a mural that he painted in the heart of the city. Most people are not aware of this, because the political power base that commissioned the mural also had it whitewashed when it was completed. Come to the Mount Washington Association Meeting on November 15 and learn "the rest of the story".
We have a great panel of folks who know all about it that will be joining us to provide background and perspective on this little known history of Los Angeles. The panel will include Luis Garza, Carol Jacques and Mark Valen, key folks in the revival of the Siqueiros Mural.
See you there!
