Comunidades en Solidaridad: A Collective Transformative Vision

These murals depict the strength and internal beauty of Salt Lake City which is intuitively implied through color, light, movement, gestures, and the content: land, city and people intertwined harmoniously. Chacón has long been a proponent of community involvement in her artwork; this is a collaboration between the artist, Mestizo Arts and Activism Collective and its youth researchers, Mestizo Institute of Culture and Arts, Mestizo Coffeehouse, 500+ community members, writers, and artist apprentices. Artist apprentices analyzed data from surveys they distributed in the community and created images for Chacón to translate and paint onto aluminum panels; forming the murals. Using the imagery as their inspiration, four community poets, including an 11 year-old boy, created the written works. The survey data helped inform the three themes represented in the murals: Past, Present, Future in the Arts; Education / Experiential Knowledge; Working Together / Building Utah.
