Staff Reviews


This book is a beautiful tribute to Maestrapeace, the mural that adorns the Women’s Building in San Francisco’s Mission. Angela Y. Davis’s foreword provides not only an introduction but historical and social context, which is followed by sections that explore the art, the meaning of its imagery, introduce the seven female muralists, and detail the artwork’s history from inception to today. To hold this book in your hands is to hold Maestrapeace itself—its art, journey, intent, and spirit.

— Jocelyn

Description


Twenty-nineteen marks the twenty-fifth anniversary of Maestrapeace, the monumental and fabulously detailed mural that adorns two sides of the Women's Building in San Francisco's Mission neighborhood. Weaving in myriad female figures, historical and sacred, this public art work highlights women's accomplishments across time and continents, and envisions a world healed of injustices. This beautiful book allows readers to take an extended tour of the mural, revealing intricacies and nuances that may go unnoticed from a street-level view. Angela Davis's foreword provides a rich history of the mural and the seven artists who collaboratively executed the work--a collective of women, itself a rarity in muralist tradition. Maestrapeace, the book, enriches readers' appreciation for the groundbreaking mural, and it makes this deep sense of place accessible to viewers across the globe.
