This series of murals are on grates located near 7th and Snyder. The color is reflective Burmese and Bhutanese textiles but the stripes respond to surrounding signage. The murals are located on what appears to be an old silent movie theater. Look up close and you can see the word talkies really faintly from the Snyder Street side.

Mountains to the City

This mural describes the path of families from Burma and Bhutan from the Mountains to the City. The mountain is such a powerful symbol for the Karen people of Burma. (Though this mountain is a woodcut and does not look exactly like the Karen mountain) The Karen mountain was where families lived for generations. Parents tell their children one day we will go back there. The house on the left is a refugee house, the city in the foreground brings a lot of opportunities and also unknowns. This mural is connected to Southeastbysoutheast a storefront project working to provide art and educational opportunities to new refugees from Burma and Bhutan.
