Description
The sun and the moon, Los Angeles, 1992, Westlake/MacArthur Park station, interior mezzanine level, Metro Line C (formerly the Red Line), Wilshire Boulevard and Alvarado Street), MacArthur Park. The murals were inspired by the nearby communities, which are a meeting of worlds and cultures. The Central and South American peoples here create new homes while transforming Los Angeles. The titles come from the pyramids built in Mexico during the Toltec empire. They were later absorbed into the better-known Aztec civilization. Ceramic tile, two panels, 15' x 45' (each), by Francisco Letelier. Sponsored by MTA Metro Art.-- Dunitz, Street gallery, rev. 2nd ed., p. 79, #50.
