“Zarzamora” by San Antonio artist Oscar Alvarado is comprised of three sculptural mosaics placed along the sidewalks of Zarzamora Street. These designs reference the history of the surrounding neighborhood and honor landmarks that were integral to the economic development of the area.

The 3’ X 9’ mosaics are placed in proximity to three selected bus stop benches along Zarzamora Street, providing shading to pedestrians and bus riders, and highlighting the cultural significance of the neighborhood.
