Women’s History Month Mural at MiraCosta College

In celebration of Women’s History Month, the work of a talented group of students is on display at MiraCosta College’s Oceanside, California, campus. This commemoration of influential women musicians was originally created for display at the 2015 Oceanside Music Festival. Elizabeth Bautista and Darren Williams were the lead artists, and other contributing students included Ally White, Joey Curiel, Christina Curiel and Ruben Beaz. The mural is on loan from the Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation during the month of March.

Who are the women featured in the mural? Top (L–R): Jane Little, Elizabeth Cotton, Esperanza Spaulding, Sister Rosetta Tharpe. Bottom (L–R): Sheila E, Anoushka Shankar, Candy Dulfur.
