Artist Judy Baca argues that muralism is a work made in relatedness: related to the people that surround it; related to the place it is in, and made in a public voice. Like Baca, artists across the Americas created murals that spoke to the period and communities for which they were designed. This symposium brings together an international group of scholars to discuss new approaches to understanding the function and meaning of both ancient and modern murals as well as their enduring legacy.
