Description

The two identical metal and concrete entrance markers at both entrances of the East Los Angeles Civic Center  represent the Center’s governmental and social activities.  The designs in the markers illustrate education, recreation, law, medicine, music and relaxation. The gates are intended to resemble the papel picado (perforated paper) tradition, a Mexican artistic technique which originated in pre-Columbian Aztec society.
