On Wednesday, July 6, CRP Bay Area and CRP Desertland artists collaborated on painting an entire bus headed to Mexico and eventually Cuba in a Caravan to draw attention and break the US embargo against Cuba. The US has prohibited direct trade with or travel to Cuba since Cuban Revolution put Fidel Castro in power. This policy has been more harmful to the citizens of Cuba than their government. "The US embargo of Cuba causes shortages of food, medicine and other important supplies for eleven million people. The embargo is an immoral policy that uses hunger and disease as political weapons," states the Pastors for Peace website. CRP artists painted both sides of the bus with the words End the Blockade of Cuba in English and Spanish. They also painted a dove of peace on the back and the island of Cuba with a heart in the middle on the front.
CRP artists are proud to contribute their works to organizations and movements that they support. We utilize the leftover supplies from our commissioned murals to create works relating to the issues that our important to us.
