The City of Santa Ana Investing in the Artists Opportunity Grant presents an exhibition of monochrome photography by Federico Medina, a life-long Santa Ana resident. “Life and Culture in the Golden City” is a showcase of the culture, architecture and diversity in Santa Ana. We live in a time where life and our environment is advancing and transforming at an accelerated rate which is why Federico Medina decided to create a “time-capsule” in the form of photography spanning from late 2015, 2016 to early 2017. Although Santa Ana has and will continue to advance in many forms; many elements of the city will always remain. Each resident of Santa Ana experiences the city in his or her unique and personal way. The photography exhibit “Life and Culture in the Golden City” is Federico Medina’s view of Santa Ana through his camera lens. Each segment of the exhibit is accompanied by a description explaining certain photographs and the photographer’s experience in capturing the moments in time on display.

SEGMENTS OF SANTA ANA ON DISPLAY • Murals and Architecture • Youth • Seniors • Religion • Community • Culinary • Protest • Music • Art • Street Photography • Homeless Population
