La Musica de San Anto mural is a commemorative mural project which pays homage to the lives and music of Randy Garibay, Clifford Scott, Rocky Morales, Felix Villareal, Manny Castillo, Eva Garza, Doug Sahm, Valerio Longoria, Lydia Mendoza, and Rosita Fernandez. The mural has gone on to be a highly visible emblematic representation of San Antonio music and culture as well as an iconic presence at the gateway to the West Side of our city.
The mural is a tribute to the lives and music of San Antonio-based musicians. San Anto Cultural Arts founder Manny Castillo always wanted to have murals on West Commerce Street and Guadalupe Street, the gateways to the Westside. La Musica de San Anto is the first of these gateway murals. Designed to show San Anto musicians from different decades in the same jam session. The mural also includes playbills and references to classic San Antonio music venues. Castillo passed away suddenly while this mural was still in process so the artists painted him into the center of the mural, commemorating Manny as both a passionate punk-rock musician and a Westside community leader.
