paintings on our walls.
Paintings on the wall was a two hour mural tour through the East End of Houston Texas. As a historian of murals in Houston Texas I facilitated a hands on tour with thirteen high school students. The purpose of our tour was to expose and educate ourselves about local histories that speaks to Latin American life in the US, industrialization, gentrification, and local histories expression in the public space through the traditional practice of Muralism. Together we encountered important art figures such as Leo Tanguma (Rebirth of Our Nation), Dual Streets (Voodoo Lounge), and Jesse Sinfuentes.
