A walk along Cesar E. Chavez Avenue

Dec 09, 2010 by Lisa Newton

At just over 6 miles, Cesar E. Chavez Avenue is actually a fairly new Los Angeles Street.

Inaugurated in 1994, and named in honor of the famous union leader César Chávez, the street starts at the 110 and continues until it intersects and then continues into Brooklyn Heights, Boyle Heights and East Los Angeles, all the way toward Monterey Park.

Within this small street, beats the heart of city filled with a rich and diverse culture. Over the course of about 1.5 miles, starting at 1720 East Cesar E. Chavez Avenue, to the edge of Evergreen Cemetery, I photographed, documented and discovered 15 glorious murals.

These murals tell the story of a neighborhood that has grown and changed over the years.

Next time you want to explore our glorious city and want to celebrate its culture, I recommend taking a public art walk along Cesar E. Chavez Avenue route.

And if you happen to be hungry at the same time, the original King Taco is along the way, as well as many other interesting food and shopping opportunities.
