Thank you once again to all of our backers. Last month Adolfo Hernandez Alvarado added the third installment to the mural wall at 34th and Habersham. Adolfo synthesized Sandoz’s landscape and Wandzel’s portraits by painting a centrally located female figure with a crown formed out of seashells and waves. The woman represents the feminine qualities of Savannah as a city, from it's natural and architectural beauty to its motherly embrace. “La Madre” of Savannah is flanked by two bearded horn players derivative of the fountain in historic Forsyth Park.
In order to celebrate a year's worth of art and community support SeeSAW will be hosting a block party at 34th and Habersham this Sunday, October 14 from 3:30 PM - 5:30 PM. There will be an Italian Ice cart as well as music provided Vinyl Appreciation.
We will also be kicking off a week's long collaboration with friend and world renowned artist David Ellis. From Oct 14 - 19, David will be painting "large, mobile" 3-D objects on the lawn in front of the mural wall at 34th & Habersham. Previous work with David Ellis in Savannah and the Wynwood Walls district in Miami, FL inspired the formation of SeeSAW and we're excited to have him back in Savannah.
If you're in town and have time we'd love to see you Sunday or sometime later in the week while David Ellis is here.
