This mural was presented on April 1, 2017 as part of the 17th annual Davis César Chávez Celebration in Central Park. It represents a collaboration between Taller Arte del Nuevo Amanecer (TANA) and the City of Davis Arts & Cultural Affairs Program, and was sponsored by the City of Davis Human Relations Commission. Special thanks to Drucella Miranda and Melissa Moreno for their vision and implementation.

The original design, created by TANA, is based on an image of César Chávez and Larry Itliong as a tribute to both of these men and their respective communities. Their hard work and dedication has created positive change for everyone. As we continue to strive for better working conditions for farmworkers, we remember to live in their legacy. The mural project was designed with the intention of creating a space of belonging for all and allowing the community to co-create a piece of art that speak to them, especially children and young people. It is especially symbolic this year since the Yolo County Board of Supervisors adopted a Safe & Welcoming Community Resolution. The artwork allows us to celebrate how we all bring our unique differences, and are able to come together to acknowledge and respect our human dignity.
