There’s a new mural in #DTJax, thanks to The Jessie and the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville. “The Roots That Ground Us” by Grace Bio is the first work of public art in Jacksonville, FL that is dedicated to Filipino Americans. We are so grateful to The Jessie and the Cultural Council of Greater Jacksonville for bringing more public art to #DTJax and for spotlighting our community’s rich multicultural heritage.
You can find this mural at 40 East Adams Street.
