I’m an American; my country is built by every race from every nation in the World
As of 2015, 14% of the United States’ population is foreign born, compared to just 5% in 1965. Nearly 39 million immigrants have come to the US since 1965, with most coming from Asia and Latin America.
I call this post a ‘chat’ because when I view the murals on the San Francisco Women’s Building I feel as if I’m in a conversation about community, personal responsibility, a healthy vision of the future, and the joy of creative collaboration.
MaestraPeace Muralwas painted in 1994 by Bay Area muralists: Juana Alicia, Miranda Bergman, Edythe Boone, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Meera Desai, Yvonne Littleton and Irene Perez.
The mural was fully cleaned and restored in 2012 by the original muralists assisted by a new generation of muralistas.
