Mexican-American History & Culture in 20th Century Houston
The Heritage Society commissioned a mural to celebrate the many contributions of our city’s Mexican-American community. In the spirit of the great Mexican muralists, this vibrant collective artwork, Mexican-American History & Culture in 20th Century Houston, highlights the places, personalities, concepts and events that shaped the Mexican-American community and laid the foundation for the multicultural city we live in today. Set in Connally Plaza against a dramatic backdrop of City Hall and the downtown skyline, the new mural will be a cultural landmark in the historic heart of Houston.
The style of the mural at THS evokes 20th century art in the vein of the great Mexican muralists, such as Diego Rivera. The artwork is a collaboration between highly esteemed artists Jesse Sifuentes and Laura Lopez Cano and is a significant contribution to Houston’s growing catalogue of public art.
