Monday Mural: cultural pride

This mural is found at Foothill and 26th Avenue.  It was done by José Velásquez in 2001 and was sponsored by several community organizations.  The colors seem as fresh as if they were painted recently.  It's title is Roots, Spirit and Color of the American Dream.

  2. It is an intriguing picture with the drummer with four hands indeed, I noticed that too. It is full of life and spirit.

  7. It is gloriously vibrant, but the three hands and the horn sort of threw me. I am sure there is a metaphor there.
