Mural Art in San Diego
San Diego is home to a thriving art community and mural art is an important expression of community identity from San Ysidro to Oceanside! However, many of the murals in and around San Diego are aging and in need of restoration. This is important since communities with public art experience less incidents of graffiti, tagging and other types of destructive acts upon community property. So Via has teamed up with local artists in support of community revitalization through mural restoration, creation and education for the benefit of all community members.
Mural-Based Service Projects
Our mural-based service projects are a great way for your group to engage in the community while getting a rich educational experience.
Via International can create three distinct mural-based activities for your group to choose from:
Take a Tour of the Chicano Park Murals
Chicano Park is the largest outdoor mural park in the nation and is filled with almost 100 distinct murals depicting Chicano identity and indigenous and Mexican history. This activity includes a workshop on how to read these famous murals led by local mural experts.
