Archives and Collections

Description of Collection: 

East Los Streetscapers was founded in 1975 by Wayne Alaniz Healy and David Rivas Botello, both veterans of the East Los Angeles mural movement. Among the public art projects produced by this team are paintings, tiles, bas-reliefs, and sculptures in a wide variety of materials. The designs are multicultural, strong, dynamic, colorful, site specific, and compositionally dramatic in line and texture. The East Los Streetscapers' collaborative works frequently involve other Chicano artists. The archives of the East Los Streetscapers contain all of the creative and documentary records related to the team's artwork, both public and private. In its collection are original concepts, designs, cartoons, maquettes, and finished art pieces.
