Witness to LA History: Spirit of LA Progress

$20

Witness to LA History emerged as the first digital production of the UCLA/SPARC Cesar Chavez Digital Mural Lab composed of six, 8'x 9' digital murals output on vinyl. Each piece represents a different group that has contributed to the multi-ethnic history of Los Angeles. The builders of Los Angeles have hands that have bled into the surface of the earth. All of our witnesses have sacrificed and worked to create the City of Angels. This witness, the blue-collar worker, is encircled by a halo, representing industrialization. Industrialization has brought us modern streets, homes, skyscrapers, airports, freeways – the landscape of today’s L.A. Above the blue-collar worker are men on horseback, overlooking the city. These are the men who have traveled west to build this city. They saw promise in this new land. They worked to change what had been, and to achieve prosperity. They believed in Manifest Destiny – the march of progress and the achievement of the “American Dream.”
