About the Project
Beginning in the late 1960s, numerous attempts have been made to bring this historic work of art back to public view.
In 1988, the Getty Conservation Institute began the conservation of the mural. By 2006, the Getty and the City of Los Angeles committed a combined $8.9 million to build The America Tropical Interpretive Center (ATIC).
The ATIC will include a protective shelter, a viewing platform and the creation of an interpretive center in the restored Sepulveda House.
In 2008, Amigos de Siqueiros was established to contribute to the enhancement of the multi-media content and technology in the Sepulveda House. Amigos will become stewards of The America Tropical Interpretive Center to ensure a vibrant, historic, premiere public destination for future generations.
