I had heard about a park in San Diego that was filled with incredible murals and on Friday afternoon I had the chance to check it out! Chicano park is located in the Barrio-Logan neighborhood and is directly below the bridge that leads to Coronado Island. The history behind the park is fascinating, and the murals embrace the Mexican heritage-- many of them representing the struggle Mexican-Americans have gone through. Isn't it insanely cool? Hands down the most beautiful freeway underpass I've ever seen. PhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucketPhotobucket

  1. even though i grew up in san diego (encinitas), i never knew of these until i went away to college. i was taking an "art of the chicano movement" class and went to see these murals as part of my coursework. really amazing!
