About: Each mural artist is painting in a 8' x 12' space of an interior gallery wall. Artists are reflecting on the neighborhood of Barrio Logan, having many historically valuable murals painted during the Chicano movement in the late 1960s/70s and beyond, which is marked physically by nearby Chicano Park. Today, the mural and street art movement is experiencing a resurgence as the Barrio Logan neighborhood is experiencing a lot of development and a lot of popularity amongst burgeoning arts groups.
Exhibiting artists: Manu Faves, Esther Gamez Rubio, George Garcia, Sake Saratoga, Mario Torero, Melissa Walter, and Anna Zappoli
