Artist Andrew Stirdivant Repairs the Lemon Street Murals
City Councilmember Ahmad Zahra has been raising funds independently to revive and restore the eight separate murals at Lemon Park and the Lemon underpass, one at a time. The first murals to be restored will be the “Car Mural” & “The Town I Live In.”
There are 11 murals on Lemon Street. According to Zahra some are to be recreated and some that need to be restored. Local artist Andrew Stirdivant has begun working on them, with consulting by Higgy Vasquez, son of famed local muralist Emigdio Vasquez. The murals were originally produced with assistance from community youth in the late 1970s.
According to Zahra, “We are hoping to have local youth participate [in the restoration] too.”
The next murals on Lemon Street that Zahra wants to work on are “The Lady of Guadalupe” and the “Mujeres Latinas” mural. He is working on getting the funding for those two murals. Residents can donate to help restore the murals at https://donorbox.org/lemon-street-mural.
