Our new mural proclaims, with pride, what the West Side is all about – resilience, joy, color and culture.
In a compelling and colorful video, watch artists Ernesto Ybarra and Xilam Balam explain the meaning behind the striking symbols, colors and faces they chose to depict on the iconic Robert Street Pedestrian Bridge.
West Side Community Organization is proud to have gotten this project off the ground after years of planning. We're grateful to the artists for their creative vision and work. Watch the video below!
Funding for the project provided by WSCO and the St. Paul Department of Planning and Economic Development’s Commercial Vitality Zone program for the West Side’s District del Sol.
If you're inspired by what you see, please consider making a contribution to support WSCO's work. From supporting public art, equitable development, and renters rights, to organizing for 100% voter participation, we're working toward a more just and joyful West Side.
