Travel to The Great Wall of Los Angeles for a brief viewing of this half-mile-long mural by Judy Baca, then continue on to LACMA to see two exciting exhibitions: Painting in the River of Angels, which further explores Judy Baca’s murals, and The World Made Wondrous.
The Great Wall of Los Angeles
One of Los Angeles’s true cultural landmarks, The Great Wall of Los Angeles in San Fernando Valley is one of the country’s most respected and largest monuments to interracial harmony. This is a half-mile-long mural depicting the history of California, created by Chicana muralist Judy Baca and 400 youth and their families.
Painting in the River of Angels: Judy Baca and The Great Wall | LACMA
For the first time in her practice, Judy Baca transforms a museum into a studio. She and artists from the Social and Public Art Resource Center expand The Great Wall of Los Angeles, painting two sections of the mural at LACMA. Come see works from the Chicano Movement, Watts Renaissance, and archival materials that have never before been exhibited.
The World Made Wondrous: The Dutch Collector’s Cabinet and the Politics of Possession | LACMA
The World Made Wondrous recreates a fictive 17th-century Dutch collector’s cabinet in order to examine the political and colonial histories of European collecting practices in that period. The exhibition interrogates the underlying agendas and structures that were fundamental to these collections—which are precursors to today’s European and American museums.
