Packages include placements on the La Musica de San Anto Mural that is located at 1300 W. Commerce. The mural is a commemorative project which pays homage to the lives and music of Randy Garibay, Clifford Scott, Rocky Morales, Felix Villarreal, Manny Castillo, Eva Garza, Doug Sahm, Valerio Longoria, Lydia Mendoza, and Rosita Fernandez. The mural has gone on to be a highly visible and emblematic representation of San Antonio music and culture as well as an iconic presence at the West Commerce Street gateway to the Westside of San Antonio.

The mural was completed in 2009. Over the last 10 years, San Antonio’s weather has caused it to fade significantly. Amid unprecedented new development pressure, this iconic and culturally relevant artwork is now in desperate need of restoration. The mural restoration project will preserve a creative, cultural, communal and inspiring work of public art. It has already garnered the support of Google Fiber, UTSA, and Weston Urban, and is a partnership between San Anto Cultural Arts, La Printeria and La Prensa Texas. .

David Blancas was born in Nueva Rosita, Coahuila in northern Mexico and began drawing and painting at an early age. He maintains a multifaceted portfolio of teaching, mentoring, and creating public and private commissions with a specialization in paintings, portraiture, mosaics, and murals. David studied fine art at the University of Texas at San Antonio and has achieved recognition in various regional and national art competitions. He currently resides in San Antonio, Texas and is the sole proprietor of Pintura Artwork Company, a studio, and art gallery that was established in 2002. He is also the director and lead muralist of Project Inspire: Mural Arts Program, an organization that collaborates with other agencies to produce community murals and other public art projects.

With your help, this project will make a significant impact on preserving this Westside treasure and our legacy bilingual print publication. It would mean so much to have your financial support toward this lasting cultural preservation mural collaboration.
