This mural commissioned by the Hispanic League of the Piedmont Triad was a gift to the City from the Hispanic Community. It is the first and only Hispanic mural downtown. It was funded by the North Carolina Arts Council, The Winston-Salem Foundation and Reynolds American.
Students created panels at the bottom using traditional Aztec stencils and their own designs.
The skylines of Winston and Salem can be seen in the background and the figures in the foreground are united in unity.
