Roy's Postcards: 1984/04/20

Inscription:

Leonard and I went to the Museum of Science and Industry, and we saw the Mathematics exhibit and the Living Egg. But everything else was being redone apparently for the Olympics, so we also briefly visited the Natural History Museum.

Postcard back:

MEXICO Y EL GENERO HUMANO (Mexico and Mankind). This 24 ft. by 60 ft. ceramic mural on the south exterior wall of the main building at the California State museum of Science and Industry, Exposition Park, Los Angeles, by Mexican artist Raul Esparza S. colorfully tells the story of human struggle for Mexican independence.

Leonard's comments:

I tagged this 'lacmnh' because the Science and Industry museum is right next to the LACMNH and there aren't many postcards from it. It's also right next to the Coliseum where a lot of the Olympic events were being held.

Strangely, I have absolutely no memory of this mural.
