Corpus Christi Artist Mayra Zamora was commissioned by Herrman and Herrman PLLC to design our building with a mural in April 2020. The mural was finished May 2020 and is titled “VIVA CCTX.” VIVA CCTX is a rainbow-like mural with many black and white hidden messages for viewers to decipher over time. There are heavy influences from Pre-Columbian and Modern art in her mural. The mural also features symbols local to the Corpus Christi area, like the Texas A&M Corpus Christi University logos, Del Mar College logos (both are schools she went to), and city, state, and national flags.
In April 2021, we commissioned Mayra Zamora a second time to continue “VIVA CCTX.” Mayra Zamora finished the second edition of the mural in June of 2021. This mural is in the same Mexican-American iridescent style with coded black and white messaging as the first edition. The most significant difference is the symbols initially only dedicated to the community are now highlighting symbols synonymous with law and the local community.
In July 2021, our law firm commissioned Mayra once more to create a third mural as part of our building. This mural is painted onto our law firm’s window shutters and resembles the design of an authentic Mexican blanket known as a “serape.” This third mural is again in the same stunning polychromatic design rooted in culture local to our community and Zamora’s heritage.
Together, the three murals are titled “COLORES DE LA VIDA,” meaning Colors of life in English. Colores De La Vida is the first LGBTQ+ mural in Corpus Christi. Mayra Zamora and her team worked on these murals for over a year and are a sensation to see, worth taking a focused, in-depth look to appreciate the beauty and decipher the hidden messages in her work.
Mayra Zamora had help painting her three murals to cover the entire building. Eugene Soliz, Jose Gonzalez IV, Eva McLain, Natalia Hinojasa, Heaven Garrison, and Jocelyn Castillo were her assistants.
