Current and prospective members are welcome to join ArtTable’s SoCal Chapter leaders for an in-person, artist-led walking tour of Sonia Romero’s Hecho A Mano. On view at the Mariachi Plaza Metro Station in Boyle Heights, the mural was just recently completed this past year.
The mural Hecho A Mano was commissioned by Metro Art, and it highlights the historic and contemporary stories of Latinx, Jewish, and Japanese makers and workers from Boyle Heights, featuring an eclectic mix of objects that intertwine the artist’s personal connection to Boyle Heights with those of individuals from the neighborhood. In reference to the work, Romero states that, “There is a certain homemade and handmade quality that has been created by generations of people raising families and creating livelihoods in the neighborhood. I wanted to capture and honor this quality through the metaphor of the hand, by painting this mural by hand.”
