Chicano mural painting on exterior surfaces emerged in the wake of the La Raza militancy during the late 1960s. The murals initially emphasized ethnic and political expression. Themes displaying place and environmental consciousness are beginning to appear in this form of exterior art. The murals are a cultural mirror of group identity for the Mexican American community.-Author
