This is a discussion between playwright Howard Pflanzer and Steve Zeltzer about the controversy over artistic expression swirling around the 1936 George Washington murals by Victor Arnautoff at the San Francisco high school named after Washington.
The San Francisco school district voted 850,000 dollars to paint over the Washington murals because their opponents say they depict black people and native Americans in a negative light by showing disturbing images for current students to see when they enter the school.
Pflanzer is writing a play, THE MURALS, about this conflict to be presented at LaborFest in 2021.
