Rick y sus estudiantes

By Jesús Aguado

The talented students of the Stirling Dickinson Escuela de Arte are getting ready to present their spectacular new work in the Biblioteca patio.

Brunson has worked in collaborative tridimensional—and some electric—murals in China and in Grand Rapids, Michigan. He told Atención that he worked on the new idea for the new mural and then gave it to the students so they could make changes, “because it is just the road map, it can always change.” The final result can be seen in the central patio of Insurgentes 25.

The first tridimensional mural at the Biblioteca is adjacent to the stairs and presents a child flying over a book and getting surprised by nature, magical creatures, and places.

Every Tuesday and Friday on the second floor of the library, young art students gather and work in painting, sculpture, 3D designs, and whatever assignment they are given by professor Rick Brunson. In their classroom, their pieces are kept and teacher Rick happily offers a “tour.”

The school of art was named Stirling Dickinson, said Brunson, its founder, not because he was an artist nor because he was the founder of the Instituto Allende and Bellas Artes, but because he was a philanthropist who, year by year, got in his jeep and went to rural communities, measured the feet of children with no shoes, and a couple of months later returned with a pair of shoes. “He did it until he died,” said Brunson.

The school opened in January 2016; the classes run three times a year: January, June and September.

To enroll in the school—there are no fees for art supplies or instruction—one must be between 14–17 years old and must submit a portfolio for review—including a minimum of three art pieces.
