Workshop and Mural Activity: Flora & Fauna of our Countries

Workshop and Mural Activity: Flora & Fauna of our Countries

Through a grant from City Council District 15 this public program of three participatory design workshops and three murals will address the shared immigrant experience through such topics as native flora and fauna, culturally specific mythical animals, and memories evoked by family textiles.

Teaching Artist Marta Blair will lead a participatory art project involving free mixed-media workshops for all ages culminating in three tape murals created in different locations in the Bronx. Participants will develop a mixed-media project in the workshop portion and then get together one or two weeks later to build their mural using vibrant tapes on sidewalks or walls in three public NYC Parks. These temporary tape murals will be displayed for the community for approximately three weeks before they are removed.
