Preparing for Satellite Installation, Launching a New Project
Hello Friends and Supporters,
First of all, thank you for making the upcoming mural installation possible. For those of you that completed your surveys and sent me your addresses, all backer rewards have been mailed as of today. With an awesome eighty backers, it took me a while to package and mail all of the rewards. The $25 and $100 rewards went out this morning, so please look for them in the next few days. All other rewards went out several weeks ago.
Gonzalo Hidalgo will be starting the installation of the Huehuetlatolli Murals at Satellite Senior Housing between April 15th and 20th, and I am anticipating an early fall inauguration. I will keep you posted. I am currently finishing a new set of murals for the Centro Chicano at Stanford University, and the works in progress can be seen at the following web site: http://juanaaliciaatcentro.wordpress.com/ An April installation is anticipated for these as well, with a fall inauguration to follow. I will also invite all backers to that party as well!
Finally, I am directing a new project with my students at Berkeley City College, the True Colors Mural Project for the REALM Charter School in West Berkeley. We are currently in the middle of a Kickstarter campaign for that project as well: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/juanaalicia/fresh-start-true-colors-interactive-mural-at-realm.
If you can support us in that effort, I would greatly appreciate it. All funds for the project go to Earth Island Institute, our fiscal agent. Therefore, in this case, your donations are also tax deductible! Please watch the REALM School project video and support my students' work for environmental justice in the public schools.
