Join us in celebrating the 11th mural of the Alley Art Project – Transcendence! Witness the unveiling of the mural, meet the student artists and designers, and check out the latest mural up close.
Collectively, Transcendence tells the story of all the HSLC students’ future hopes and dreams, and reflects on their place within their community. A bronze sculpture on long term loan to the Museum from James B. Flaws and Marcia D. Weber, titled Harmony by Santa Clara Pueblo artist Tammy Garcia, served as inspiration for the mural design. Garcia highlights traditional Pueblo symbols and incorporates personal symbols reflective of her family and the world around her. Students created symbols and designs that reflect stories of their personal lives connected to their personal identities, representing challenges, choices, protection, fragility, growth, transformation, mental well-being and potential for the future.
The Alley Art Project, established in 2008, is a partnership between The Rockwell Museum and the High School Learning Center of the Corning-Painted Post Area School District. Each year, students create murals with professional artists and museum educators using The Rockwell’s own fine art collection as inspiration. The program supports students through the vigorous process of designing and producing public art – while cultivating a sense of pride, ownership and connection to the community.
The Alley Art Project is made possible in part by grants from The Triangle Fund, The Great Circle Foundation Inc. and William G. McGowan Charitable Fund.
