This event celebrates the seven amazing female muralists who created San Francisco’s iconic Women’s Building and the launch of their new book, Maestrapeace: San Francisco’s Monumental Feminist Mural. Free and open to the public. Books will be available for purchase. More info here.

The seven muralists who created Maestrapeace—Juana Alicia, Miranda Bergman, Edythe Boone, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Meera Desai, Yvonne Littleton, and Irene Pérez—collectively possess well over one hundred years of mural expertise and have played an active, often leading role in the Bay Area and national mural movement. Every member has been a community activist, organizer, or teacher, serving diverse communities and arts organizations from Harlem to the fields of the United Farm Workers, from Nicaragua to India, from Palestine to Native America.
