Breaking Barriers included the work of more than 140 Los Angeles artists of diverse ethnic and geographical backgrounds, invited by the museum to contribute work relating to the changing social, political, and geographic boundaries of Los Angeles in the wake of the Rodney King verdict and ensuing civil unrest. Breaking Barriers provided a forum for artists to add their voices to those of civic leaders, the media, and politicians as they engaged in the process of analyzing the urban environment and the rebuilding of Los Angeles.
