Back in my old neighborhood in San Francisco, a wonderful muralist named Juana Alicia is struggling with the love of neighborhood and the frustration of not getting paid by the city for her work.
Juana is, in my opinion, one of the best muralists around. Her style is so unique and full of life, drawing upon indigenous themes, social causes and calls to action.
Long story short: her latest project, La Llorona, is in a budget crisis. She is working without reimbursement as the city's bureaucracy plays hot potato with her budget.
Juana needs your support. Her work is medicine in the truest sense of the word. The images she paints bring healing to the community.
