La Memoria de Nuestra Tierra

Artist: Judith Baca | Location: Jeppesen Terminal, Level 5, Southeast

"La Memoria de Nuestra Tierra," or "Our Land Has Memory," explores the concept that the land we live on records the stories of the people who have inhabited it. This digital mural depicts the story of the migration during the 1910-1917 Mexican Revolution that brought the artist's family, along with many others, through El Paso and up to Colorado for work on the railroads and in the mines. Recorded in the mural are both anonymous and well-known Latinos who have struggled for justice in Colorado. Among those portrayed are Corky Gonzales, Tijerina and the artist's grandfather, Teodoro Baca.
