¡Murales Rebeldes! L.A. Chicana/o Murals under Siege

September 23 2017 - February 27 2018

LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes (LA Plaza) and the California Historical Society (CHS) uncover the development and legacies of Chicana/o murals arising out of the Chicano Movement. ¡Murales Rebeldes! looks at how Chicana/o murals in the greater Los Angeles area have been contested, challenged, censored, and even destroyed. Through stories of eight murals, this exhibition documents controversy and loss while celebrating artistic and historical contributions.
