Chicano Park in Barrio Logan. The park is underneath the ramps to the Coronado Bridge and you can see concrete pillars adorned by murals.

Urban Oasis | Chicano Park, Barrio Logan

Chicano Park is a small urban park located under the base of the Coronado Bridge. Murals are painted on the concrete pillars which support a multilane highway that runs overhead.

The Story Behind the Photo

At first glance, you might think the park is oddly situated with multiple support towers sitting in the middle and a five lane highway running overhead. However, I've always thought this place was a gem. When I first moved to San Diego, it was close to where I lived and I came here quite frequently in the late afternoon. It was always quiet and relaxing for me (I came on weekdays) although it can get very crowded especially during holidays. The park itself is filled with the cultural heritage and has a beautiful collection of murals. I think it's amazing how the community turned all the harsh concrete into this wonderful place.

The park has an interesting history, filled with conflict between the local Chicano community and the city of San Diego. If not for the action of people protesting, it may have ended up being a government building and parking lot. I far prefer how it turned out and it's now a National Historic Landmark.

Acrylic Fine Art Print with a Float Mount — Ready to Hang

Trulife Acrylic Fine Art Print

This is a photographic print where the front has been directly adhered to a sheet of TruLife acrylic which is an ultra clear, scratch resistant, and anti-reflective glazing. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally and bounces it off the surface of the print resulting in a display with incredible depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to have light emanating from the image itself. The back of the print is sealed with another layer of protective acrylic.

The print comes ready to hang with hidden mounting hardware on the back that makes the print appear as if it is floating in front of the wall. No additional framing is needed. Choose this medium for a modern and minimalist presentation.

Print is signed on the back.

Please allow 4-6 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please inquire for international rates.
