In 1990, Barbara Carrasco’s L.A. History: A Mexican Perspective, a portable mural about the history of Los Angeles, was temporarily displayed at Union Station. A decade earlier, the mural was censored by Los Angeles’s Community Redevelopment Agency, which had commissioned the work. As such, L.A. History: A Mexican Perspective was never displayed in its intended downtown Los Angeles location. Jointly presented by LA Plaza and the California Historical Society as part of the Getty’s Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA initiative, this special installation returns Carrasco’s mural to Union Station for public viewing for the first time in almost thirty years.
