Estrada Courts, USA

California Museum of Photography

November 21, 2015 - March 5, 2016

Winter Reception

Saturday, January 30, 2016, 6pm - 9pm

FLASH: David Weldzius is the presentation of an in-progress work from the artist’s new series based on the community murals at Estrada Courts. Known for its murals, many of which have been designed and painted by current and past residents, Estrada Courts is a public housing project in Boyle Heights, Los Angeles, constructed for the families of factory workers and returning servicemen in the 1940s. Weldzius photographs sections of the murals, makes monochrome prints, and then applies oil paint to infuse the works with color. 

Flash! contemporary art series features single works made within the last year. The exhibitions are presented on the third floor of the CMP. FLASH: David Weldzius is the eleventh exhibition in the series.
