Siempre Santa Ana
Moises Camacho and Abram Moya, with help from Valley and Godinez High School students, June 2019
This mural painted at the Hertitage Museum of Orange County depicts the 150 year history of Santa Ana. The mural brought together the city, the Santa Ana Unified School District, and the Heritage Museum of Orange County together. While working with students, the two muralist taught a workshop on perspective. “It’s really hard to overlook the diversity,” Kevin Cabrera said. “When you look at the mural, and especially some of the buildings, it helps tell the stories of certian communities.” Aside from familar downtown historic sites like the Old Orange County Courthouse and Old Santa Ana City Hall, the artwork also includes scenes like the segregated Fremont Mexican school and Second Baptist Church–Orange County’s first black congregation, a building that still stands today.
