  1. 1. The Great Wall<br />Of Los Angeles<br />
  2. 2. Represents the history of ethnic people of California from prehistoric times to the 1950’s.<br />One of the country’s most respected and largest monuments to inter-racial harmony.<br />Began in 1974 and took over 5 summers to complete.<br />Created by hundreds of members of the community working together with artists and historians.<br />
  3. 3. "Division of the Barrios and Chavez Ravine”<br />When Dodger Stadium was built in the 1950's, many residents of the largely Mexican American Chavez Ravine area were persuaded to sell their homes with promises of new low cost housing which was never built. Others, like the woman in the mural, fought to keep their homes but were forcibly removed.<br />
  4. 4. “La <br />Ofrenda”<br />This mural features Delores Huerta and is a dedication to the strength of Latino women. It brings attention to the hardships of war and immigration, while highlighting the life and hope that endures through these struggles<br />
  5. 5. “Resurrection<br />of the <br />Green<br />Planet”<br />This mural conveys our need for a global effort to protect and preserve the environment. It calls for the revitalization of the sense of world community, respect for human rights, and appreciation for the cultures and contributions of all people and living things.<br />
