Holiday in Philadelphia

Murals

Philadelphia is filled with Latino-themed murals, many of which have been sponsored by Philadelphia’s Mural Arts Program (MAP). These include Puerto Rican Woman (427 W. Dauphin Street), Recuerdo de Nuestra Tierra Encantada (Memories of Our Enchanted Land, 2249 N. Howard Street), and Puerto Rican Statue of Liberty (1701 Mount Vernon Street). In 1998 the United Electrical Workers Union (UE), in dialogue with the Mexican union Frente Autentico del Trabajo (FAT), commissioned Chicana artist Juana Alicia to create a mural in Erie, Pennsylvania. The mural, A Woman’s Place: A Warrior in the Struggle for International Solidarity, represents the resilience of working women over the last century, along with the link of solidarity between the UE, FAT, and workers internationally.
