My latest trip to Philadelphia and New York leaves me with Murals on the mind. My love for this particular art form dates back to the summer of 2002, when I fell in love with Diego Rivera on a trip to Mexico City. Later, I studied his murals and works at my university. Murals can change history and the way people view it. They can completely change a broken city to one beautiful, surviving and vibrant.
