After losing his right arm from a schrapnel-ridden injury sustained in Vietnam, artist Jesse Trevino was determined to continue making art, and pushed himself to learn to draw and paint with his left hand. He was intent on honoring and preserving his cultural heritage through his artwork. Some of Trevino's large-scale works can be seen in San Antonio: the 100-foot long "La Historia Chicana" is on display at the Sueltenfuss Library at Our Lady of the Lake University, and the 9-story hand-cut tile mosaic, titled "Spirit of Healing", which can be found downtown in the Christus Santa Rosa Children's Hospital.
