Join Heritage for the third installment of our Annual Lecture Series held in partnership with The Women’s Building on Thursday, September 13. Internationally recognized Bay-area muralist and educator Juana Alicia will kick-off the event by providing a historical context of San Francisco’s mural movement. Josie S. Talamantez, co-founder of Chicano Park in San Diego, will present a case study on the park’s nomination to the National Register of Historic Places. Lastly, we will hear from Judy Baca – muralist, educator, and founding director of the Social and Public Art Resource Center in Los Angeles. Baca will discuss a recent partnership with the National Park Service to nominate The Great Wall of LA mural as a National Historic Landmark. The Women’s Building is a fitting venue for this important discussion as the organization is undertaking an effort to restore its magnificent MaestraPeace mural.
This lecture is held in partnership with The San Francisco Women’s Building. The event will take place in the Audre Lorde Room of The Women’s Building at 3543 18th Street starting at 6pm.
