PHOTO RELEASE: New Chinatown Mural Highlights Cultural Past, Future of High-Speed Rail System
December 20, 2022
FRESNO, Calif. – The California High-Speed Rail Authority (Authority), in partnership with the Fresno Arts Council, Chinatown Fresno Foundation, and the City of Fresno, unveiled a new mural today in Fresno’s Chinatown along China Alley.
The new mural represents and pays homage to the rich and historic past of Fresno’s Chinatown, while looking toward the future of building the nation’s first high-speed rail system. The mural is located on China Alley and Tulare Street, next to a high-speed rail underpass currently under construction and steps from the future Fresno Station.
“Cultural arts projects like this mural are great ways to bring the community together,” said Authority Chairman Tom Richards. “We hope this piece contributes to the ongoing revitalization of downtown Fresno and Chinatown and sparks a conversation about what the future high-speed rail system has to offer to Fresno and all Californians.”
