Join us on Saturday, April 23, 2022, at 11:00 am as we ride through Downtown San Jose and explore the city’s vibrant murals that have become a visual representation of the city and its community. This tour will provide a compelling new perspective on the way we see murals in San Jose and allow us to reflect on what is being presented to us in public space.

We will experience the stories that produced these murals, to whom they were intended for, and who were they funded by; this information provides a painted picture of the cultural economy of San Jose and highlights the crucial role of the artist as they exhibit a cultural identity inspired by the city’s site history, agglomeration, and locational specialization.
