On View: 
Friday, June 25, 1999 to Sunday, September 5, 1999

An exhibition of color photographs taken by Camilo José Vergara documents Latino Los Angeles. Public art is vibrant, front yards are showrooms, and homes are filled with paintings of the mountain vistas and farm animals from immigrants' rural roots. Images of the Virgin of Guadalupe are omnipresent. Taken over the course of more than two decades, these photographs chronicles the development and visual culture of this urban community.
