Diego Rivera of the Streets?

Here are more murals from the same general area as the ones in the park under the freeway. (Click to enlarge.) It's as if the spirit of Diego Rivera has been channeled through the the civic-minded artists of El Paso. Ana Darcy Méndez, in fact, was impressed by the image of civic consciousness these represent. Such displays are not uncommon on her planet, but not that common here.

If anyone knows of similar expressions of local pride anywhere else in the United States, we'd like to hear about it!
