Eduardo Pineda has created over 56 murals for cities, museums, school districts, universities, corporations, unions and commercial businesses since joining the Community Mural Movement in 1978. His mural partnership, Fresco (1990-98), with legendary muralist Raymond Patlán produced over 20 murals. In 2008 he teamed up with muralist Joaquin Alejandro Newman. Currently, they are installing cast concrete tiles for the Ashland Youth Center. In 2011 the duo produced digital murals with families for the 100 Families Highland Hospital Community Mural Project. The Alameda County Arts Commission selected them for both projects.
In 2009 Pineda painted a mural for a health clinic in Bamako Mali, West Africa, and produced a photo series for the Alameda County Arts Commission. He was the Director of Education at the Museum of the African Diaspora (2006-2007) and held multiple education posts at SFMOMA (1990-2006).
As an independent curator he has organized exhibitions at numerous Bay Area museums and alternative art spaces. In 2012, Pineda curated Forgotten Stories, Remarkable Lives: Days of the Dead exhibition at the Oakland Museum of California and in 2010 co-curated Images: Independence and Revolution for The Mexican Museum, San Francisco.
In addition to teaching in Diversity Studies, he taught public school teachers through the Center of Art and Public Life (2003-2006) and is an Arts Integration Specialist for the Alameda County Office of Education. He regularly collaborates with San Francisco State University anthropology professors and students to produce murals about health.
