Item details

Adorning the wall of the Kiem Laundromat on North Eighth and Empire streets, the colorful artwork paints a thousand words. Created by Samuel Rodriguez, the mural depicts a portrait of his own daughter and his friend’s daughter who lives a few blocks away. “This recent wall marks the first of many that I plan to do, which would depict the cultural landscape of San Jose through observations and interviews of its residents. This will result in pieces that could only be found in San Jose.”
