Lawrence Ciarallo - Struggle of a Lifetime‍

Hoboken Utility Box Mural Artist: Lawrence Ciarallo - Struggle of a Lifetime8, located at 89 Washington St.

Lawrence Ciarello - Artist, designer and muralist, work is an eclectic mix of portraits, pop art and mixed media that are inspired by the endless beauty that exists amidst the chaos of daily life. “Struggle of a Lifetime” honors longtime civil rights leader and politician John Lewis and highlights his quote, “Our struggle is not the struggle of a day, a week, a month, or a year, it is the struggle of a lifetime. Never, ever be afraid to make some noise and get in good trouble, necessary trouble”

There will always be vital work to ensure that all citizens have equal protection under the law and do not face unnecessary barriers to democratic participation. It is our responsibility to ensure these rights and support this endeavor in every way possible.  

I chose my design to honor Rep. John Lewis who passed away as I was developing my concepts. I could think of no better way to reflect our theme of equity and inclusion than with a tribute to him.

Mr. Lewis dedicated his life to the principle of non-violent, democratic action and his "good trouble" quote was a perfect explanation of those values. It is important to remember that the struggle for social, economic, racial and gender equality never ends. As Mr. Lewis so eloquently reminds us "this struggle is not a struggle of a day, a week, a month or a year. It is the struggle of a lifetime."

I am extremely grateful to be a part of this project. Many thanks to Mayor Bhalla, the City Council and especially the Art Advisory Committee for selecting and placing my work in such a prominent location.
