Meastrapeace cover image - cropped

Celebrate the 25th anniversary of Maestrapeace, the monumental and fabulously detailed mural that adorns two sides of the Women's Building in San Francisco's Mission neighborhood with muralists Miranda Bergman, Edythe Boone, Susan Cervantes, Meera Desai, Irene Perez, & Yvonne Littleton and their beautiful art book, Maestrapeace: San Francisco's Monumental Feminist Mural

Twenty-nineteen marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of Maestrapeace, the monumental and fabulously detailed mural that adorns two sides of the Women's Building in San Francisco's Mission neighborhood. Weaving in myriad female figures, historical and sacred, this public art work highlights women's accomplishments across time and continents, and envisions a world healed of injustices. This beautiful book allows 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.
