Day of the Dead
[As part of the remit to make the Untold LA iPad Book available to as many people as possible I'll be posting photos from the book in sequential order on a regular basis until it is completely online.]
On Pages 296-298 of the iBook we've got a glimpse of neighborhood actives in North University Park. Above: as part of Día de Muertos celebrations a theatre group performs at a local park. In this sketch a City Councilman is tormented by the ghosts of laws he voted for that hurt the immigrant community of Los Angeles.
Below: children in Día de Muertos makeup.
Below: Painting a symbolic tombstone.
Below: young dancers cross Hoover Street, (location of Alfred J. Salisbury House and other grand Victorians.)
