Fresh Paint Springfield 2022
2022 | Sensorial Fragmentation @ Springfield, MA
This mural is our second participation in Fresh Paint Springfield, a mural festival that's been taking place in that city since 2019. It is located in the front of German Gerana Elementary School.
This project is part of our commitment to collaborate and connect with the Puerto Rican diaspora in the United States. This community in particular was dramatically divided by the I-91, a huge interstate highway. To reach the school, the students must walk through a tunnel underneath the highway. Our mural dialogues with another one painted at the entrance of said tunnel. We reflect on how learning takes place through our senses and the diversity of our experiences. Through art, we can connect fractured spaces.
We thank Fresh Paint Springfield for inviting us again to take part in this amazing project, that remains committed to its local communities.
