Am?®rica Tropical Speaks Truth to Power

Imagination fills in what has been lost through time and neglect
Senses engaged you imagine the artist's palette
Past is present as the apparition beckons contemplation
Am?®rica Tropical cries out truth to power
Maestro Siqueiros' monumental grandeur undimmed
The dialog continues...

Bravo! Bravo!

Bottom-up meets top-down.... A long arduous journey is realized
To the Getty Trust and Conservation Institute in reviving a historic legacy of great import.
To the City of Los Angeles and the El Pueblo Administration and Commission for the political will to see this project through.
To the architects, designers, engineers and construction workers who set the crown upon a jewel to behold
To IQ Magic and its entire team in the creation and mounting of the Am?®rica Tropical Interpretive Center.
To the story tellers who fill this sacred space with song, poem, and pictures.
And, forever in memory, to the grass roots community of activists and artists who initiated and labored over the past forty-five years to return this iconic work of art back to public view.
