Cantina "presencia de america latina" mural

Presencia de América Latina (Presence of Latin America), also known as Integración de América Latina (Integration of Latin America) is a mural painted by Mexican artist Jorge González Camarena between November 1964 and April 1965. . Its principal theme is the unity and brotherhood of the different Latin American cultures.

This mural was impressively recreated at Cantina Alley by local legendary artist Shaun Burner & Miguel Perez. It is located in our staff parking area, facing 24th Street.

The mural describes the history of Latin America through the use of angular, symbolic images, which emphasize the value of fraternity between the different ethnicities of the Spanish American world. The work is read chronologically from right to left.

TIP: The best shot of this beautiful mural is to shoot it from far away to capture its entire beauty from left to right.  Best to capture later in the evening as the sun can over/underexpose the large mural in bright conditions.
