Life in the Golden City highlights historic landmarks in Santa Ana. The four-panel mural is painted on a utility box, and each panel features a different conic building in a golden-silhouette style that the locals may recognize. Art and artists from the 1980s had a significant influence in the artwork Reyes creates. Many of the artists that influenced him believed in making art accessible and open. On top of the utility box, Reyes included a hidden message: "art is for everybody," a well-known quote by artist and activist Keith Haring.
