Following an amazing Mexican lunch with Felipe and Executive Director, Debra J.T Padilla,
Carlos Rogel, Project Manager, gave us a guided tour of the Digital Mural Lab. Explaining some of the technical processes undertaken in order to produce and preserve murals.
I'm looking forward to learning more about these processes.
This afternoon I'll be meeting Judy Baca, artist, Artistic Director and Founder of SPARC, at the Judy Baca Arts Academy, a new school named in her honour in Central LA. Where we will be working with students on the 'Emancipation Project'.
The scale of this city and complicated historical relationships between communities, government and citizens based on class and ethnicity far outweigh those found in Scotland. It's a fascinating place I could definitely get used to.
Especially watching the dolphins, pelicans and other wee birds from the beach first thing in the morning...
