Description / Interpretation: 

Four thousand years of Filipino and Filipino-American history. The design is divided into two parts. The first half is historical, leading up to the awakening of Filipino national and political consciousness. The second part is dominated by a huge bird with significant Filipino Americans on its wings, the farmworkers on the bottom, and the youth and community on the right. The mural faces a large community garden. Sponsored and commissioned by SPARC. Photo: © Robin Dunitz | Photo © Ian Robertson-Salt
