Additionally, renowned artists Ivan Roque, Jenny Perez, Jose Felix Perez and Nate Dee have created an epic set of murals for the Botanical Garden at MCC entitled WINDOWS TO OUR WORLD.
The building’s architectural cathedral arches serve as the canvas for these talented artists. The four distinct pieces pay tribute to the array of cultures that have shaped the city’s arts and culture landscape. The murals are the most intriguing artwork ever designed or created in this space at MCC.
“We are beyond excited to showcase the unique talent of these artists,” stated Camasha Cevieux, Director of Cultural Affairs overseeing MCC. “The murals grace the arched wall-scape next to our botanical garden and offer visitors the ability to reflect on their cultural heritage and those amongst our diverse community. They are truly Instagram-worthy,” she continued. “The artistic displays, which include the Love Pop exhibit by BB Musik, bring art to everyone in a beautiful, free public setting.”
The work depicted by the murals reflect the following themes:
- Hispanic Heritage Month– Artist Ivan Roque has created a piece that celebrates his Hispanic heritage. His natural compositions and color selections reflect his background.
- Black History– Artist Jenny Perez celebrates Black History through her creation of lively expressionist figures and are both beautiful and colorful. Her work reflects her energy and excitement.
- Earth Month: Artist Jose Felix Perez has created a richly textured mural of colorful vegetation loaded with gorgeous organic patterns.
- Caribbean Heritage: Artist Nate Dee’s work combines figures, animals and nature. His work is very thought-provoking and is influenced heavily by his Haitian heritage.
The introspective murals can be viewed at MCC’s botanical garden, located between the Miramar Cultural Center and Miramar City Hall, offers waterfront views and is also home to the Vanishing View public art glass exhibition by Alison Sky.
