Family Love Mural Tour - Part 2

Monday, September 07, 2015

Picking up where we left off, driving down Zarzamora, a similar route that I had almost every day during my Middle School years. We passed by the Ybarra Car Wash at the corner of Salinas and Zarzamora and ran across this colorful piece. "Una Mesa Para La Gente"

We backtracked a bit and drove through the Cassiano Homes where there is a mural on just about every apartment building.

We had a lot of fun with this one! If you did not know about Little Patch Garden, it is a local community garden run by volunteers, you can keep up to date with them by liking their Facebook page

From here, we walked to Tower of Americas. In hind sight, I would have parked a bit closer with these four little legs, but we would have missed this close up of public art.

And our last mural of the tour, Confluence of Civilizations in the Americas, by Juan O'Gorman, above the Lila Cockrell Theatre by the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center. Check out this listing for more art installations inside and along the building.

And if this is your first time catching this, you can catch Part One of our family mural tour where we stop at Taco Haven and drive through to the Westside of San Antonio.

  1. Hello! I came across your blog doing a school project on the San Antonio Murals. Do you by any chance know who commissioned or did the murals at the Cassiano Homes? I have been looking into it, but nobody seems to know anything about who painted them or why. I would appreciate any info you may have! Thanks!
