San Antonio is a city full of murals, but the new one in the Government Hill neighborhood represents something more. San Anto Cultural Arts Center’s Public Art Program Manager John Medina explains how it came about.
"Earlier in the year we were contacted by City Center Health Careers and they wanted us to team up with them to paint the mural and teach it as part of their curriculum," Medina said. "Previous to this they didn’t have an art class."
So what does a mural and art have to do with City Center Heath Careers Charter School?"
The San Anto Cultural Arts Center is encouraging San Antonians to get out of their cars and onto their bikes for a ride of discovery. Public Art Program Manager John Medina wants you to show up at San Anto with your bike, your energy, and a little curiosity. If you do, he’ll take you on a tour of significant West Side murals.
