The photographic exhibition "Southeast Drive", by local artist Leopoldo Peña, shows a tour of some cities in southeast Los Angeles: South Gate, Lynwood, Bell, Bell Gardens, Huntington Park, Compton, Walnut Park, and Cudahy, where there is a majority presence of Mexican and Central American immigrants, manifested in the interaction of the formal and informal economy, whose tasks are support and point of contact for different sectors and racial groups. The exhibition shows cities where such disparate and powerful symbols coexist as the Virgin of Guadalupe and Martin Luther King.
