Reception for a new community mural by more than a dozen local artists and students
Canal Alliance, Marin Open Studios and Storek Studios/Architecture are proud to announce the opening of a new collaborative art installation featuring the work of more than a dozen local artists and students.
The public is invited to a reception celebrating the installation of the mural on Thursday, March 21st from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at 91 Larkspur Street in San Rafael.
The 240 square foot mural has been permanently installed in the main lobby of Canal Alliance’s office space at 91 Larkspur Street in San Rafael.
Created to provide a welcoming and inspiring reception area for the immigrant community members who access services at Canal Alliance, the artwork shares stories of optimism, strength and determination that are inherent in the immigration experience, and represents the cultural diversity of the immigrant community.
The mural, which is entitled “You are Home / Siéntase en Casa” was created by 11 local artists who each created one 4’ x 4’ painted panel.
Individual panels were then connected via smaller panels which were painted collaboratively during a teaching workshop where Canal Alliance students had the opportunity to contribute to the final work.
Contributing artists included Isidoro Angeles, Tracy Eastman, Kathleen Edwards, Ernesto Hernandez, Guillermo Kelly, Oscar Morales, Eustorgia Sol Navarrete with David Guerrero, Carlos Ortega, Lynn Sondag and Cynthia Tom.
Free and open to the public
