TITLE: Something Sacred
ARTIST: Melanie Vazquez
LOCATION: 737 S Wabash Ave
“Something Sacred (Algo Sagrado)” is a symbol of hope. It is for those who make sacrifices in hopes of creating an opportunity at a better life for their families. It is for those that are willing to walk through closed doors without knowledge of what they may discover, but they do it for their family anyway. This mural stands in solidarity with those fighting against all odds regardless of status, income, gender, race, culture, religion, etc. “Something Sacred (Algo Sagrado)” is a dedication to Familia Vazquez and Familia Esparza. A huge thank you to the production assistant, Sean Grant.
