Junior SeaWalls: “La Vida Colorida del Mar” was painted in Isla Mujeres, Mexico, Quintana Roo in collaboration with VolunQuest‘s summer camp sixth graders and PangeaSeed’s SeaWalls
As an artist, I am thrilled to have collaborated with VolunQuest’s summer camp sixth graders and PangeaSeed’s SeaWalls to create “La Vida Colorida del Mar,” a mural located at Casa De La Cultura in Isla Mujeres, Mexico. This project was a collaborative effort to raise awareness about the importance of ocean conservation, with a focus on the marine life native to Isla Mujeres.
Working with the young ARTivists from VolunQuest’s summer camp was a truly inspiring experience. Their creativity and passion for the project was infectious, and it was an honor to work alongside them to create a mural that captures the vibrant and diverse marine life of Isla Mujeres.
Through this project, we aimed to inspire the local community to take action and protect the ocean and its inhabitants. The mural serves as a visual reminder of the beauty and importance of the ocean, and the need to protect it for future generations.
I am proud to have been a part of this collaboration with PangeaSeed’s SeaWalls, an organization that uses art to raise awareness about ocean conservation issues around the world. Together, we were able to bring attention to the unique marine life of Isla Mujeres and the need to protect it.
“La Vida Colorida del Mar” is a testament to the power of art to create positive change. It is my hope that this mural will inspire others to become ARTivists for the ocean and to take action to protect this vital ecosystem.
