Gintong Kasaysayan, Gintong Pamana (A Glorious History, A Golden Legacy)

Located in Unidad Park in Historic Filipinotown, "Gintong Kasaysayan" measures 150' X 30', extending the entire western edge of the park.  The mural was sponsored and commissioned by the Social and Public Art Resource Center (SPARC) and created by artist Eliseo Art Silva in 1995. 

The design is organized in two parts: the first half (to the south) is historical, including the awakening of Filipino national and political consciousness.  The second part (to the north) is dominated by a huge bird with significant Filipino Americans on its wings, farmworkers on the bottom, and youth and community members on the right. The mural was named one of the top 20 iconic murals in Los Angeles by L.A. Weekly
