Detail of incomplete portion of mural : Carranza, Hidalgo, etc. "This is our first series of public murals to be painted in Chicano Park. The first approaches to this wall design, Salvador Barajas creates charcoal drawings of these figures shown. Note: paint roller was experimented by Guillermo Rosete; spray can paints tested by Salvador Torres. {Salvador Torres explores glass beads implanted in paint, uses mirrors to project beams of solar light, animates mural figures, creates solar sculpture, holographic art movements and measurements of the massive colonnades.} Pencil drawing by Tomas Castaneda was wanting to express Chicano & Chicana's models, as well as historical figures, A point well taken. Figure on the far right is Carranza. This figure is vandalized because Carranza ordered the assassination of Emiliano Zapata. Feelings run high to date for support for Zapatistas in Barrio Logan. Plans (see Salvador Torres., Chicano Park Concept #3-173-A[temp numer]) by Caltrans, & Chicano Park Steering Committee to approve and commission Arturo Singh to release his model for a seven foot bronze sculpture of a Zapatista, to be placed in the entrance of Chicano Park, 2003?" Salvador Torres
