Carin Steen, MuraArte Antigua to MuralArte Guate

Date grant awarded: April 3, 2016
MuralArte Guate is a mural project based in Guatemala. In the Maya Kaqchikel community of Chimachoy, mural painter Carin Steen will explore with students of the elementary school their local culture and history through a series of workshops that include drawing, story telling and photography. The participants’ ideas will then be used in design that will, with help of the high school students, transform the 75 meter long wall surrounding the elementary school into a colorful and visual testimony of their past, present and vision of the future, turning it into a landmark for the community that proudly displays its culture.
