Called to Care: Local artist paints mural in honor of Fresno's doctors and nurses

FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- Healthcare workers at St. Agnes Medical Center will have a bit of a boost when they pull into work, thanks to a local artist.

Artist Jason Esquivel, a Fresno native, painted a mural for nurses and doctors in the parking garage where healthcare workers at St. Agnes park every day.

The mural depicts five healthcare workers, including one in a facemask. "Called to Care" is also painted on the mural.

Esquivel says he painted the mural to honor healthcare workers for their work during the COVID-19 health crisis.

His work can also be seen in multiple Downtown Fresno restaurants including Take 3 Burgers and Kocky's Bar and Gril. Papi's Mexican Grill, El Mexicano in Fowler, Sunnyside High School and Kepler Neighborhood School are also home to Esquivel's art.
