Help get this mural funded @mac_arte in San Jose @kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sjma/san-jose-museum-of-art-x-the-propeller-group/description link in my profile @empire7studios @seewhatyouthink In Fall 2017, the San José Museum of Art will join forces with the acclaimed art collective The Propeller Group, renowned muralist El Mac, and award-winning children’s author and artist Christopher Myers to create a new permanent public mural in downtown San José. Monumental in scale, the mural will feature a single portrait of a young refugee. Join us in bringing this timely message of hope and empathy to San José—the capital of Silicon Valley and a sanctuary city that has long prided itself on its progressive politics and demographic diversity.
The Propeller Group has created public murals around the world as part of its ongoing project Vietnam: The World Tour (VNTWT). The collaborative project celebrates street culture and embraces opportunities to forge human connections that transcend national borders. Previous iterations have been presented in Saigon, Kabul, Singapore, Brisbane, Los Angeles, Paris, Lyon, and Amsterdam.
The mural is being created in conjunction with the first survey exhibition of The Propeller Group, which will be on view at the San José Museum of Art from October 27, 2017 — March 2018.
