America Tropical Educational Activity Book
The great Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros painted the mural America Tropical in 1932 on a second story wall of the Italian Hall. It was immediately controversial and later whitewashed due to its political content. A partnership between the City of Los Angeles and the Getty Conservation Institute re-unveiled the mural to the public in 2012. The site includes a rooftop viewing platform, protective shelter, and an interpretive center located in the Sepulveda House on Olvera Street.
Learn more about the mural, the artist, and the tumultuous historical period of the early 1930s through this educational activity book.
