Chicano park is a very small urban park that's located under the Coronado Bridge. 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 Chincano 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.
Edition of 50. Available in the following sizes:
24 x 30 inches

Medium: Archival pigment print with acrylic facemount
This is a pigment print where the front has been directly mounted with an adhesive to a sheet of ultra clear, scratch resistant, and non-reflective acrylic glass. This process is known as face mounting. The acrylic captures light internally resulting in a display with incredible visual depth and vibrancy. With proper lighting, the acrylic print will appear to be back illuminated with the light emanating from the image itself. The print comes ready to hang with a hidden mount on the back that floats the print off the wall.
Please allow 4-5 weeks for production and delivery of your print. The prices include U.S. shipping, please contact me for international rates.
