Murales Rebeldes! L.A. Chicana/Chicano Murals Under Siege. During the 1960s–1970s Chicano civil rights movement, Chicana/o muralists took to the streets, creating works that expressed cultural pride, embodied political activism, and challenged the status quo. Painted on the walls of city buildings, housing projects, schools, and other community structures, these murals became the artists’ voices—interpreting the heritage, the identity, and often the plight of Chicanas/os in America… and invigorating and transforming communities.
