Conservation of América Tropical
América Tropical, located at El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument in downtown Los Angeles, is the only U.S. public mural by famed Mexican artist David Alfaro Siqueiros still in its original location. This project, a collaboration between the GCI and the City of Los Angeles, seeks to conserve, interpret and provide public access to the mural.
