Digital Mural Project 2002-2003
Galería de al Raza's Digital Mural Project (DMP) was launched in November 1999. The project is an ongoing series of 10'x24' computer-generated murals displayed on Galería's billboard located at the corner of 24th and Bryant streets. The site stands as a reclaimed advertising space that has been the host of temporary murals done by Latina/o artists since 1973.
Since its inception, the DMP has presented artwork of themes ranging from gentrification, gender politics, and the war in Iraq to critiques of technological mythologies.
The DMP encourages the use of new digital technology to create a series of innovative public art works. Building on the Galería's 30 year history of temporary murals in San Francisco's Mission District, the Digital Mural Project seeks to engage diverse communities through the creation of artistic, social and political content.
