The Artist Enshrining a Town’s People in Murals
Drive around the North End of Wichita, Kansas, and you’ll find an explosion of color. It’s the work of Horizontes, a community project that fuses activism and creative expression. Created by artist and community organizer Armando Minjarez, who immigrated to the United States in 2001, Horizontes is now at work on the world’s largest acrylic mural by a single artist: a towering, historically accurate piece that honors the Mexican laborers who built the city’s train tracks a century ago.
