Galería de la Raza is pleased to announce its newest digital mural installation, Por Vida, a work by Manuel Paul of the Los Angeles-based Maricón Collective. Timed in honor of San Francsico Pride Month and inspired by the dedicated work of Queer People of Color, Paul’s art celebrates achievement and strength in the LBGT community.
