When Siqueiros arrived in Los Angeles, the Plaza at El Pueblo de Los Angeles Historical Monument was already a place of political free-speech. He began teaching fresco techniques to young artists at the Chouinard Art Institute. Siqueiros soon forged long term relationships with influential people which led to his being commissioned to create the mural at El Pueblo de Los Angeles.
