The History, Legacy, and Continued Impact of the Mujeres Muralistas

Photograph of the Mujeres Muralistas

Location: California Historical Society, 678 Mission Street, San Francisco

Women have played a powerful role in mural marking across the world, and the Mujeres Muralistas have painted some of the most well known and historic murals across the city of San Francisco, from Balmy Alley and beyond. Join us for a powerful discussion with moderator Professor Terezita Romo and the Mujeres Muralistas, Patricia Rodriguez, Ester Hernandez, and Irene Perez. They will discuss how they got into art and mural making, how they became the Mujeres Muralistas, the impact of their work, and what they are doing now.
