The impact of mural art is far reaching in the borderlands, REZ, and beyond â€“ including artistic representations from women and men alike. Here in the Southwest the mural art and street-art communities are blooming â€“ beautifully reflecting the communities and peoples of today. Moderator Thomas â€śBreezeâ€ť Marcus, artist and founder of Paint Phx, a city-wide mural and street arts festival will engage the panel of well-known artists including Nanibah Chacon (DinĂ©/ Chicana), Douglas Miles (San Carlos Apache/ Akimel O’odham), Lucinda Yrene (Chicana) to continue this dynamic discussion that began in April with our panel event La RevoluciĂłn: The Legacy of Mexican Mural Art. Each artist will share their insights about our community and discuss the continuing influence of noted mural artists such as Diego Rivera.
Moderator: Thomas “Breeze” Marcus
Panelists: Nanibah Chacon (DinĂ©/ Chicana), Douglas Miles (San Carlos Apache/ Akimel O’odham), Lucinda Yrene (Chicana)
