PUENTES MURAL RESTORATION CAMPAIGN

 



WHY DONATE?

After 33 years the MCCLA facade mural created by Carlos Loarca and Bessie Miller, will be restored to its original status! The Puentes Mural Project Committee composed of community agencies and residents is charged with raising awareness about the mural and its history, and seeking funds for its restoration. All donations go directly to the muralists, to buy supplies such as paint, brushes, scaffolding, and to hire assistant muralists.

The restoration of the 3700 square foot mural will take approximately four weeks, and many months of planning before painting begins. You will be able to visit the mural and to see the muralists at work during the project. After the restoration, the mural will appear more vibrant and it will be protected by a coating for years to come.
