This is the newly restored Aztlan Mural, which depicts the struggles Chicanos/Mexican-Americans faced in Lubbock, Texas. The mural was originally commissioned by the Lubbock Brown Berets in the 1970s and was completed in 1977 by New York artist Fernando Penaloza. Due to the harsh West Texas elements, the mural has been restored twice by Colorado artist Emanuel Martinez. The latest restoration was completed June 20, 2013. Photo by Emanuel Martinez.
