From thousands of submissions, 8 American Portrait stories were brought to life by muralists translating the words of everyday people to communities across America. In San Francisco, we collaborated with artist Jocelyn Tsaih to create a mural inspired by the story of Lawrence W.
Artist Jocelyn Tsaih was inspired by a submission from Lawrence W. about being who you really are, creating this uplifting mural in San Francisco. It’s an expression of the joy that comes from finding your true identity.
In the image, the figure leaps in the air, so exuberant that, Jocelyn says, “flowers grow from the figure's body, symbolizing growth and new beginnings.”
