Murales Rebeldes Exhibition
A thrilling exhibit called Plaza de Cultura y Artes from Olvera Street, this Latino art exhibit looks at the murals between the late 1960s and the 1970s. During this period, art became one of the public voices and an artistic response to the Chicano Movement. At this time, the other channels of communication went unheard in the Mexican American community. When you look at the exhibition, it takes a look at the murals from the greater Los Angeles area of that time. Because of backlash, some of the murals were threatened or destroyed. One of the destroyed includes the landmark mural, "L.A. History: A Mexican Perspective" by Barbara Carrasco.

You might also want to check out the exhibit "Martin Ramirez: His Life in Pictures." This famous Mexican artist taught himself to draw, and you will learn the story of his life and some of the hardships he overcame through unrelenting determination. These exhibits are the history of Latin American art, and they're worth checking out because it tells an epic story of the Latin American people. You have a variety to choose from, and this art brings a piece of cultural history to the Southern Californian museums.
