Chase Wiggert Stella Vognar Video Report 10 November 2009 Judy Baca Judy Baca is very involved with the community of Los Angeles. She has been involved in many projects around Los Angeles. She painted a mural at the University of Southern California. A lot of her pieces have ethnic and cultural meaning in them. I thought it was really interesting how she used mathematical factors and lines to figure out where to place things and how large to make them. She also talks to the people around the area of where her works are going to be to get opinions on what should be in the piece. She would talk to neighborhoods where murals would be and the students for the mural at USC. In the USC mural, I thought some of the symbolism was extremely clever. The river coming from the mountains turns into a concrete interstate, which shows the transformation of the land into an urban city. There also are many Mexican heritage symbols due to the heritage of the people from the area from Mexico. I thought the painting program she started with gang members such as the SPARK program was a good thing to do for the city. The mural she made inside the water drainage is the longest mural in the world. The major of Los Angeles actually asked her to do more painting around the area after he saw the one. She has done over seventy different pieces in ethnic communities all around Los Angeles.
