Scape Martinez Piece Installed in San Jose Roosevelt Community Center
On December 13, 2008, the City of San Jose celebrated the grand opening of the renovated Roosevelt Community Center. The center commissioned artist Scape Martinez to create the majority of its interior and exterior artwork. Over the one and one-half years it took Martinez to complete the project, he was assisted by the UCLA SPARC César Chavez Digital/Mural Lab. Judy Baca and staff helped to conceptualize the framework of the process, oversaw overall production of the digital aspect and provided support for installation.
