New This, New That: Row Houses Get New Roofs, Hillside Mural Restored

After 80 years, 16 of Project Row Houses original row houses have shiny new metal roofs, replacing their rusty old ones. Some house families in the Young Mothers Residential Program and others shelter artists projects.

Meanwhile, Hillside Mural, by Austin artist Raul Valdez, which served as the backdrop for the Hillside Theater at the A.B. Cantu Pan-American Recreation Center in Austin, has been restored by it’s creator. Painted in 1978 with the help of East Austin youth, the mural reflects traditional Mexican-American style and heritage, and was originally funded by Comprehensive Employment and Training Act (CETA).
