The Great Wall of Los Angeles (1976-1983) is a half-mile-long community mural located in California produced under the direction of the Chicana artist, Judith Baca. The mural depicts the story of the state, and the scenes highlight the role played by Native Americans, Mexican Americans, African Americans, Asian Americans, and Jewish Americans in creating California's culture. The aim of this project is to build a digital resource that pairs the mural with primary source material to tell an alternative history of California, emphasizing the voices of traditionally underrepresented minorities. This interdisciplinary project develops a digital tool ("Image Map") that facilitates display of images, identifies areas of interest within images, and links those areas to detailed information related to the artwork. The project will result in a fully searchable Web-based platform that promotes user-driven exploration of the intertextual and multilinear qualities of the Great Wall.
