“A Journey Forward … A Covid Remembrance” by Leon RainbowThis new street mural in the Esperanza Neighborhood in New Brunswick was created to reflect on the lives and time lost through the first year of the pandemic. Images were developed through community convening discussions around mourning rites, locally and in Central America. The street mural serves as a connector between the city and the newly renovated War Memorial Park, helping activate what had previously been an otherwise underutilized neighborhood space.
