Rita's Spotlight

The City of Boston worked in collaboration with the Boston Art Commission and Street Theory to commission a mural honoring the life and legacy of Rita Hester in Allston. Rita Hester was a Black trans woman and beloved Allston community member who lost her life as a result of transphobia and anti-trans violence. The mural, titled "Rita’s Spotlight", was proposed by former Boston Artists-in-Residence Golden, and the City of Boston commissioned artist Rixy to create the mural as part of the City’s Transformative Public Art Program.
