Community Mural Projects
Community Murals are a form of dancing…
Many forces come together to make a community mural possible. The Acevedo Torero Foundation has as its mission 50 community mural projects in the next five years in commemoration of Fifty Years of Chicano Park. Some community murals are collaborations between elementary schools, middle schools and or high schools and a non profit arts organization or a city or municipal institution. The Acevedo Torero Arts Foundation sees the process of creating, funding, and executing a mural an interactive dynamic process where all the voices of the community can be heard. It is a process of IDENTITY, EXPRESSION, CELEBRATION and COMMEMORATION. Community murals are truly a form of public art for all in that they are on display 24/7 with no entrance fee required. They are a truly democratic institution in that they are created for the benefit of the whole community.
