A re-creation of an historical Afro-Latinx home, complete with personal objects, photographs, art, and digital media, brings alive the history of the Pobladores, the pre-American settlers of Los Angeles of mixed African, Indigenous, and Spanish descent. The exhibition, entitled afro-LAtinidad: mi casa, my city, is at LA Plaza de Cultura y Artes, in the heart of early downtown. While there, check the museum’s newly dedicated Historic Paseo Walkway, leading from Main Street through LA Plaza Village to Hill Street. Designed by Los Angeles landscape design firm SWA, the paseo features an arched gateway, native landscaping, historical signage and two public art installations: “Transportapueblos”: Companion of Migrants, a community-built sculpture, and “Wall Against Walls”, a section of the Berlin Wall with a message from the citizens of Berlin.
Exhibition runs through July 20.
