The nation's first female-owned-and-operated community center has been quietly doing good work with 170 women's organizations since 1979, but the 1994 addition of the Maestrapeace mural showed this building for the landmark that it truly is. An all-star team of muralistas covered the building with images of women trailblazers, including activist Rigoberta Menchú, poet Audre Lorde and former US Surgeon General Dr Joycelyn Elders.
