Art, Rock and Revolution is a multifaceted project focused on the musical legacy of Mia Zapata and her connection to the hero of the Mexican Revolution.

The purpose of this project is to highlight Mia’s musical legacy, including her significance in rock music, the historical Seattle music scene of the 1990s, and as a revolutionary lead singer and songwriter who continues to inspire and influence countless musicians today across the globe—young, old, new and experienced musicians alike. 

This project will capture Mia’s enduring musical spirit, songwriting and legacy through a graphic novel entitled, ¡Viva Zapata! Art, Rock & Revolution. Her connection to the Mexican revolutionary hero Emiliano Zapata, who also continues to inspire, will also be highlighted as this graphic novel tells their parallel stories. The novel will serve as the text for an educational program between high school students in the US and Mexico. 

This is a grassroots, completely not-for-profit effort made possible only through your donations and the hard work of our volunteers. All donations are greatly appreciated, no matter how small! Thanks for your support!
