Mayors from the Philippines post in front of a mural painted by Eliseo Art Silva entitled “Can You Read the Secrets of History in My Face,” on display in the Eastern Hotel as part of the Carlos Bulosan Memorial exhibit on August 30, 2000. Bulosan (1913-1956) was a Philippines-born activist, novelist, and poet who lived much of his life in Seattle. He championed the rights of cannery workers and others. His writings are preserved at the University of Washington. Silva’s acrylic on canvas mural, a permanent installation, celebrates Bulosan’s legacy. Third from the right is Jim Diers, Director of the City of Seattle’s Department of Neighborhoods. To his right is Cindy Domingo, one of the exhibit’s developers. Photo by Dean Wong, 2000.
