Witness to LA History: Tuan’s Parents

$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. Multiculturalism is reflected in this panel’s representation of three Asian groups: Chinese, Japanese and Korean witnesses to the history of Los Angeles. The central figures represent the youthful, dream0filled newlyweds who will venture forth on a long sea journey toward a better future. A dragon is seen throughout all the images in a circular motion, tying all experiences together in the cycle of life. The images at the right show a group of Chinese immigrants who built the L.A. railroads while being subjected to violence, abuse and disdain.
