We finally have the opportunity to bring Villa Claran artist Madelin Pérez Noa to Bloomington this October. She and fellow artist Octavio Carvajal will guide us through the creation and painting of a mural that will brighten the city’s imagery and prompt a collective smile. To cover related expenses we designed the fundraiser you can visit via the link above.
Cubamistad’s submission for a design to brighten and beautify downtown Bloomington was one of two accepted as part of the Bloomington Civil Streets Program. Painting will take place during the second week of October when we are joined by the designer of the artwork Madelin Perez Noa.
