HAILEY MARMOLEJO | @HAILEYMARMOLEJO
This piece is about the resilience of Latinx people, of Mexican American people, of indigenous peoples, of the people of San Antonio. It’s about empowerment, representation and inclusivity, and the capacity to love that each of us holds, despite the hate we may encounter. It is a reminder that there is a power greater than us.
RHYS MUNRO | @RHYSMUNROYO
” Galaxy of Love”, one part of the Travis Park Church “all are welcome” mural, is a symbol and a message of love to San Antonio and the LGBTQ community that all are truly welcome here. This mural further enhances the downtown culture by providing a visual moment to embrace and respect one another through art.
RAISA MELENDEZ TARDI | @DURA_PURA_ VIDA
My mural invites all to use their voice to stand up for what’s right. Uniting together as a community is the greatest tool towards justice.
ALBERT GONZALEZ | @TREBLA_ART
My mural is about love, faith and resilience. Sometimes we go through dark moments when we feel alone and through the church we regain confidence in these things.
VICTOR “SUPHER” ZARAZUA | @SUPHERCBS
SCOTCH WILLINGTON | @SCOTCH_WILLINGTON
My theme is migrants which is important to the church for all their help sheltering those in need. If we can help people in their time of need, then love will certainly conquer hate.
