The world's first Solar Panel Mural has been unveiled in San Antonio and is the perfect example of combining art with energy and science.

The mural was a collaboration project between Land Heritage Institute (LHI)’s LHI Art-Sci Projects, EPIcenter, the Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC), and, OTGC Member, the Land Art Generator Initiative (LAGI).

La Monarca is a giant loterĂ­a card celebrating San Antonio’s status as the National Wildlife Federation’s first Monarch Butterfly Champion City.

The mural is comprised of four panels combined to form a 6 and one-half feet by 13-foot solar panel mural. Artist Cruz Ortiz created a Monarch Butterfly, labeling it La Monarca — Spanish for the monarch — and appearing much like a large Loteria card.
