The time has come to commemorate Latin@s as an integral part of this community through a public display of art. CULTURA and the Latino Civic Association are excited to commission an artist to paint a mural that celebrates our community's Latin@ culture. Latin@ culture is immensely diverse and we welcome submissions that honor a particular Latin American heritage, as well as submissions that encompass Latin@ culture in general or locally. A wide array of Latin@s live in Tompkins County that work, study and/or care for their families and each other. Latin@s have lived here for several generations, many are native to the US or have migrated here from other countries. The Latin@ Mural Project provides a platform for the message of Latinidad.
May 23: Submissions due by 1 pm
June 6: Winning proposal announced
Summer 2014: Mural painted
Open to all.
12' x 12' wall (with flexibility for expansion) at the Tioga St entrance to the Seneca St parking garage (next to Post Office).
