On December 14, 2019, Canal Alliance unveiled its newest public art installation. The mural, entitled “Empowered through Education” is a tribute to the story of Dr. Ramon Resa, a Central Valley pediatrician who overcame unthinkable obstacles thanks to the power of education.
The mural unveiling was a community event featuring a presentation from Dr. Resa, author of Out of the Fields, My Journey from Farmworker Boy to Pediatrician and subject of the film Ramón Rising.
Created by local San Rafael painters as well as Italian mosaic artists, the mural is an innovative mixed-media installation that will inspire students and visitors to Canal Alliance’s education building for years to come.
