The Conservation of Outdoor Contemporary Murals

Ghosts of the Barrio, 1974, by Wayne Alaniz Healy, after conservation. The mural—located in East Los Angeles—is 1 of over 70 murals painted on the walls of the housing units in Estrada Courts and Ramona Gardens in the 1970s. The mural was conserved in 1999 as part of the Los Angeles Murals Assessment and Conservation Project. (See cover for a detail image of the mural prior to conservation.)
