MEDIA: Castillo Image of Chavez Mural Included in Exhibition Catalog
The Path to Knowledge and the False University, a mural designed by artist Roberto Chavez for a wall at East Los Angeles College in 1974 and controversially whitewashed in 1979, was photographed by Oscar R. Castillo shortly after its completion. Castillo's image is part of the Oscar R. Castillo Photographic Archives at the CSRC. The image was recently reproduced in exhibition catalog for Roberto Chavez and the False University: A Retrospective. The exhibition, co-curated by Sybil Venegas and William Moreno, opened at the Vincent Price Art Museum on September 13. It will remain on view through December 6, 2014.
