Bridges to East L.A., Boyle Heights, 1993. St. Louis Street at East First Street, Boyle Heights. Chicano identity within the context of war, cultural imperialism, urbanization, economic exploitation, and miscegination. The central image is a larger-than-life Chicana rising from the embers and the dizzying forces from which she was born. She embodies the resistance and vitality of the local community. The youth assistants did the aerosol piece facing the back of the building. Acrylic and aerosol, approximately 15' x 40', by Ernesto de la Loza, assisted by youth. Sponsored by L.A. Cultural Affairs Dept., L.A. Recovery Fund. -- Dunitz, Street gallery, rev. 2nd ed., p. 316, #88.
