Paint for Peace Project

The mural on the front of the building was commissioned by OT Circus through Victoria, and funds came from the UETF (Urban Enhancement Trust Fund) Grant. The mural depicts Chilean musician and activist, Victor Jara, who was tortured and killed for his words against oppression and his music that only spoke of peace, unity, and justice. His song, El Derecho de Vivir en Paz (The Right to Live in Peace) was an anthem for the anti- Pinochet rule during the 70s & 80s and is still highly relevant today. The mural was done by @release1201 and @irotism.
