Laborfest 2020 continues to educate and alert the public over the fate of the Victor Arnautoff George Washington High murals in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

In 2019, the San Francisco Unified School District Board of Education voted to spend more than $800,000 to cover-up the 1936 Victor Arnautoff George Washington High murals.

A panel will look at the history of the Victor Arnautoff murals, artistic expression, the community response to the murals and the lessons for today.

The panel will include: Jack Heyman, Dewey Crumpler, Gray Brechin and Carol Denney.

This free LIVE Zoom based event is Wednesday, July 22 @ 7am and is accessible only online.

Spaces are limited.

In order to view or participate, a Zoom registration is required. Please register today.
