Description

This mural is part of a common project between 3 working groups from 3 different civic centers in the area.

After a weekend of brainstorming the participants of the open workshop agreed to focus on the importance of water as a fundamental element in environmental preservation as well as a symbol of our physical and cultural existence in the world. So the idea of a collage with iconic images of water as a medium and as inspiration was decided upon. The mural includes images of a lamia (basque mythical mermaid-like figure), a mermaid originally painted by the artist John William Waterhouse, animals in danger of extinction, marine flora, water sports and abstract forms.

At the entrance to the Theater the mural reflects the magic of the arts. A marionette evolves from its construction and manipulation to its transformation into a real believable character, in this case a Ballerina (a reproduction of a Degas ballerina).

The mural was painted by artists and also volunteers from the nighborhood and users of the Civic Center who participated anonymously. We thank them for their invaluable contribution!

Participants:
