Book Launch Celebration: Maestrapeace

SEE EVENT DETAILS
This event is in celebration of 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, published by Heyday Books, featuring Juana Alicia, Miranda Bergman, Edythe Boone, Susan Kelk Cervantes, Meera Desai, Yvonne Littleton, and Irene Pérez Foreword by Angela Davis.

2019 marks the 25th anniversary of Maestrapeace, the monumental and fabulously detailed mural that adorns two sides of the The Women's Building in San Francisco's Mission neighborhood. Weaving in myriad female figures, historical and sacred, this public artwork highlights women's accomplishments across time and coSisters in Paintntinents, and envisions a world healed of injustices. Maestrapeace: San Francisco's Monumental Feminist Mural, is a beautiful book allowing readers to take an extended tour of the mural, revealing intricacies and nuances that may go unnoticed from a street-level view. Angela Davis's foreword provides a rich history of the mural and the seven artists who collaboratively executed the work--a collective of women, itself a rarity in muralist tradition. Maestrapeace, the book, enriches readers' appreciation for the groundbreaking mural, and it makes this deep sense of place accessible to viewers across the globe.

Books will be available at the event! Published by Heyday Books.
