Slide 8: L.A. for the Muralists Again
La América Tropical was Siqueriros’ first outdoor mural, and was the first large mural in the United States to be painted on a public wall. During its dedication, Los Angeles muralist Dean Cornwell said L.A. América Tropical “would stimulate the execution of murals on similar blank walls.” More than 30 years later, his prophecy was realized when the Chicano and anti-war movements attempted to get their message across with politically-inspired murals.
