In 1932, Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros painted a mural named América Tropical. The dramatic story of this mural, the man who created it, and the impassioned times in which it was painted – and painted over- is full of radical politics, social discord, and artistic grandeur. The artwork today is now a ghost of itself but remains monumental in scale and revolunary in technique.
Los Angeles Times, critic Christopher Knight commends how “smart exhibits by design firm IQ Magic explore the mural’s history, materials, conservation and significance…Displays offer insights, bust some myths, and expose unanswered questions.”
