Union Station Station Menu

El Sol / La Luna
Francisco Letelier

Project Description

Echoing the vibrant color scheme which dominates the Westlake/MacArthur Station, intense blues, reds, and yellows are woven together in two ceramic tile murals which enrich the mezzanine end walls. In El Sol and La Luna, Letelier uses images of the people and landmarks of MacArthur Park to reference the past, as well as the still unfolding cultural history of the present community.

Artist Statement

"I feel a special affinity with many members of the community surrounding the station. I also have left the country of my birth and started a new life in Los Angeles. These murals are celebrations of history, culture and persistence."
