Striking Miners Mural In Coit Tower
The Coit Tower murals were done under the auspices of the Public Works of Art Project, the first of the New Deal federal employment programs for artists. The artists were committed in varying degrees to racial equality and to leftist and Marxist political ideas strongly expressed in the paintings. This painting depicts striking miners of various ethnicity marching together in worker solidarity with one carrying a leftist paper.
