El Pueblo de Los Angeles poster signing with artist Fabian Debora

Celebrate artist Fabian Debora’s depiction of El Pueblo de Los Angeles as we unveil the first in our 2017 “Through the Eyes of Artists” poster series.

His poster references the city’s rich history as it lives on in future generations. In the artist’s words, “This painting serves as an introduction to the importance of its history and as an invitation across generations to take pride in the vibrant heritage that has led us to this place today.”

You are invited to meet the artist and receive a free, signed copy of his poster on Saturday, Oct. 28, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the El Pueblo Historical Monument Biscailuz Gallery.
