The Face of the City: Pan-Americanism, Border Politics, and Racial Identity in San Diego's Civic Center Sculpture

This talk analyzes the controversy surrounding Donal Hord's Guardian of the Water, a public monument completed under the aegis of the Works Progress Administration. By foregrounding local resistance to this revisionary, and ultimately temporary, national narrative of pan-Americanism, the San Diego conflict illuminates a critical disconnect between border politics and official national discourse under the Good Neighbor Policy. Breanne Robertson is a lecturer in art history at George Washington University. Robertson's research interests focus on cross-cultural exchange between the United States and Mexico in nineteenth- and early twentieth-century American art. {Will appear in FYI on Apr 13, 2012
