JAZ at the Color Walk Festival in Mexico

Muralist JAZ finished a wall in the festival Color Walk in Ciudad Juarez Mexico. The city marked by recent years of severe violence is trying to shed its infamy as one of the most dangerous cities in all of North and South America. This particular mural that JAZ finished is exactly about that political an social situation in Mexico and it reflects on the eagle myth with irony.   It is also supposed to be a tribute to the 43 students that went missing on Sept. 26th.
