Luevanos calls the viaduct mural Inspiración, or inspiration, in Spanish. Her inspiration was her mother and grandmother, both artists, and this mosaic is a fitting tribute to her roots. But she also hopes the piece will inspire everyone who passes by — and that’s a lot of people on this busy thoroughfare. “What I want you to take away is a moment of happiness,” she said. “When people look at it, it makes you happy.”
Congratulations on this fantastic gift to your community, Lisa!
