For thousands of years, murals have been painted in different ways for many reasons under varying conditions: social, political, economic, and aesthetic. From cave paintings to Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel to the Chicano and African-American mural movement, murals continue to play a vital role in communities. They are a reflection of the time, place, and socio-political realm in which they are painted.

A mural is a reflection of a community and painted with the purpose of having a conversation with the people who will see it everyday. Mural projects give communities a voice and mode of public expression so that others can hear it.
