Long-Lost Sketch of Historic Santa Ana College MEChA Mural by Sergio O'Cadiz Discovered
|Original mural at Santa Ana College|
|O'Cadiz's original sketch, in all its framed glory|
The 7' x 11 '11 colored-pencil sketch was discovered by Goldman's heirs while combing through her estate; they graciously donated it to CSPG. At first, according to CSPG Executive Director Carol A. Wells, they could not identify it because of a lack of a signature until Wille Herron, one-fourth of the legendary arts collective ASCO, made the positive identification. Once that happened, Wells emailed myself and Pilar O'Cadiz, Sergio's daughter and the keeper of his flame.
There are plans to showcase the find in Orange County--details to come...in the meanwhile, let's take a moment to marvel at the history we've yet to unearth.
