If you make your way to Charlotte’s Eastside, you will find Manolo’s Bakery at 4405 Central Ave. Manolo’s is the home to many delicious sweet and savory Latin American baked goods, and it is the home to this very important mural. Painted by Rosalia Torres-Weiner of Red Calaca Studio as a part of the Papalote Project, the mural was created as “a dedication to the children orphaned by deportation.”

Next time you’re in the neighborhood, take a moment to stop by the bakery to grab a snack and while you’re there, pause to reflect on this mural and understand that this is an issue that affects countless families and children. Art is a powerful tool for bringing public awareness to issues and we want to thank the Papalote Project and Rosalia for bringing this piece to life in Charlotte. Through creativity, we can hopefully create change.
