Calling Animal Lovers of All Ages–Murals Project
By Chris Miguel
The wonderful Wall Mural Project in colonia Guadalupe is getting ready to do another round of murals and possibly one honoring all our amazing animal friends.
Anyone who loves animals, ecology, and art is welcome to participate—not just people who consider themselves “artists.” We are all creative and all have skills and talents to offer, so please consider joining in this great opportunity. Please visit web pages mentioned below or ask in person how your talents, energies, and skills could be of use to this community effort and potential revolution through art.
Please bring hard copy sketches/images/templates you would like to submit in person:
Tuesdays and Thursdays at 10am, Cafe Santa Ana at the Biblioteca (Insurgentes 25) or submit digital images on Facebook on Animal Map SMA—facebook.com/groups/AnimalMapSMA.
We also need sponsors and donations—that “dinero” thing—to cover costs of paints and art supplies—about US$200 per mural. We have been offered a privately owned home location in colonia San Juan de Dios, so if we gather our talents and resources, we could have more than one mural. In time, if all goes well, maybe we`ll have one on the Peace Walk and…. “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one” (John Lennon).
To financially support this effort, you may donate in person at the Biblioteca (east entrance near Café Santa Ana at Insurgentes 25/Reloj); Vía Orgánica (calle Margarito Ledesma 2, colonia Guadalupe); Media Naranja (Hildalgo 83); Berlins (Umarán 19); or La Conexion (Aldema 3, Centro) in the donation cans set up for 4 Animales.
An IndieGogo page has been set up online to raise funds to cover paint/supply costs at: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/4-animales-sma-mural-in-colonia-guadalupe
The animals in San Miguel thank you! It’s a we thing… Viva artists and All 4 Animales! Sí se puede!
