Harvest Festival 2017

landing page 6

El Paseo is excited to celebrate the end of another great year with our annual Harvest Festival and are proud to present our largest project to date, a locally created mural titled “El Abrazo”.  This beautiful new addition to the Pilsen neighborhood is painted by local artists and demonstrates our commitment to our neighborhood.

We are grateful for the gardeners and volunteers who contribute their time each year and the local artists who chose to honor their community by creating such amazing, meaningful art.  It is for their dedication to improving the community that we want to invite everyone to celebrate with El Paseo, our neighbors, and anyone else involved in our community. At 4:30 pm, Muralists: Eric J Garcia, Diana Solis and Katia Perez will talk about the significance of their community-driven process, the design’s symbolic imagery, and thank all those involved.
