Long Description:
The mural is on the back of the stage. The different panels show different scenes, including a Latin American neighborhood., butterflies and abstract shapes.

From the NRHP application sheet: "The Robert E. Callahan Memorial was designed in 1934 by Sacramento architect Harry Devine. The combination open air bandstand and theater is concrete with st ucco finish. A series of steps run the length of the 60’x40’ stage, a concave arch whose surface is pierced by four evenly spaced fluted vertical bands, which also decorate the convex side of the arc. Zig-zag Moderne trim adorns the parapet of the bandstand. Each side of the bandstand has four stepped, symmetrical rectangular projections. The innermost of each also has the zig-zag parapet trim. The exterior of the bandstand is painted with a decorative mural, applied by artists of the Royal Chicano Air Force in 1975. This mural was recently restored." (visit link)
