Los murales de la comunidad Chicano/a/x iluminan una historia a menudo no contada, pasada por alto o borrada en ciudades donde los Hispanos, Chicanos y Mexicoamericanos fueron clave para su desarrollo. Aunque se desconoce el número exacto, se cree que existen más de 40 murales históricos de la comunidad Chicana/a/x en todo el estado de Colorado, incluyendo las regiones de Denver, Greeley, Pueblo y San Luis.

DENVER — April 12, 2022 — History Colorado’s State Historical Fund (SHF) announces a newly completed grant round that provides over $750,000 in grant funding for preservation efforts benefiting 17 communities across the state. These awards leverage $425,125 in matching funding provided by grant applicants and their community partners to exceed over $1.2 million in total funds for these projects. Given that research shows that statewide every $1 million spent on historic preservation in Colorado creates 14 new jobs, increases household incomes by nearly $640,000 and stimulates another $1 million in spending, the SHF plays an important role in strengthening Colorado.
