The Great Wall of Los Angeles represents a minority perspective/p.o.v. of the history of the city. Judy Baca first began the mural in 1974 through SPARC at the rise of the Chicano movement. The project was a part of the community and completed by Baca, other local artists and local youth volunteers. This mural is effective in depicting the racial tension of the past, but maybe it would be enhanced by a prospective future.
