Murals with a Message
December 7, 2010 by Candace Porth
The above messages can be found in the parking lot and on the buildings around Zao Gallery and Universal Hair Salon at 925 Grand Avenue. Artists Francisco Garcia, Alban Fernandez, Francisco Guerrero, Averian Chee, Edgar Fernandez, and Jeff Slim have been filling up the blank walls. When the mural is done, the group hopes it will show solidarity between cultures and against current cultural and political conflicts. You can see more photos on the mural’s progress here.
The above mural is by Elmac (El Mac), who I have mentioned in some other posts. Check out this work in progress next time you’re on Grand Avenue.
