The fresco pays homage to the parents of the Santana family members, Josefina and Jose, two of their sons Carlos and Jorge and one of the grandchildren Salvador, son of Carlos.

The celebration begins with a traditional Aztec blessing by “MiXCOATL”, followed by guest speakers Salvador Santana, Mayor of London Breed, Leo Rosales, Lisa Brewer, Roberto Y. Hernandez and world renowned guest of honor Carlos Santana.

The dedication will honor Jorge Santana, Carlos’ younger brother, who passed away suddenly and unexpectedly in the spirit world just as the creation of the mural began in September 2020.

Jorge was born in Jalisco, Mexico and raised in the Mission District. He was an incredible musician, just like his brother Carlos. By the age of 20, Jorge joined the legendary Latin American rock band from San Francisco Mission District, “MALO,” playing guitar on the band’s top 20 hit songs “Suavecito” and helped shape the nationally recognized Latino rock sound.

The year-long mural project was painted by award-winning San Francisco artists Crayone and Mark Bode, depicting the sketch provided by Randolph Bowes and Jorge Santana.

The mural project was developed and supervised by Lisa Brewer of Mission Art 415, Dr Annie Rodriquez and Dr Bernardo Gonzalez.

The wall dedication is part of a community movement to celebrate this incredible family, in the spirit of art, passion and unity.

This event is open to the media but not to the general public.
