Houston is celebrating its diversity with a new mural. The mural’s title is “Mexican American History & Culture in 20th Century Houston.” The finished product will highlight the places, people, concepts, events, and influence the Mexican-American community has had in shaping Houston. The artwork is a collaboration between highly esteemed artists Jesse Sifuentes and Laura Lopez Cano. Both were handpicked by the heritage society to spearhead this project, and it’s been a family affair. They’ve had the help of their children as they create this masterpiece. The project started April 9, and the artists say it probably will take at least a couple more months to complete. When it is finished, it’ll be a cultural landmark here in Connally Plaza.
