The Jaya Mural

The Jaya Mural by Emily Winter at Dell and Venice has been restored and is now looking as vibrant as it did when originally painted in 1979! Going on thirty years later, The Jaya Mural, also known as “The People of Venice vs. The Developers”, is still pertinent as a comment on what Venice is vs. what Venice may become if development is not kept in check. Go check it out, yo!
