I had the opportunity to attend the Jose Cuervo’s Blank Canvas Event. This event marks the second stage of Jose Cuervo’s Tradicional Mural Project. As part of its mission to support the arts and Latin culture, Jose Cuervo has selected 10 artists from different states to paint an original mural inspired by Latin culture.
Each mural will be exhibited in a public center such as a gallery or museum. The artist are very passionate about what they do and have inspiring stories. They will be creating original murals in just 30 days! I had the opportunity to talk with some of the artists. I was really drawn to Ricardo Gonzalez Aztec serpeant artwork. I also love Cuban artist Nereida Garcia Ferraz work.
The winner will be selected by public vote in late October. Please take the time to visit the the Facebook Page and vote for your favorite artist at http://facebook.com/losamigosdejose. The unveiling will take place in Chicago on November 8.
