Description
Tome conciencia (Drink awareness), Boyle Heights, 1987. One Stop Immigration and Educational Center (formerly Julian Furniture), 3600 Whittier Boulevard (mural on Esperanza), [Boyle Heights]. A highly graphic montage in solidarity with workers, especially the undocumented. Images of Superman (Truth, Justice, and the American Way) recur, but he doesn't seem to be a match for the determination and militancy of farmworkers, illegal immigrants, and others who are struggling for a broader application of American justice. The title (upper left corner) is written in the same style as a Coca Cola advertisement. Paint on brick, by Taller de Grafica Monumental, Xochimilco, Mexico, D.F. (Norma Urenda, Isela Guerrero, Eduardo Juarez, Mauricio Gomez, Esther Cimet). -- Dunitz, Street gallery, p. 319, #76.
