Neighborhood Pride Mural Projects

During eight-week classes, students ages 10 to 14 collaborate to create a public mural in their community, helping to beautify it and increase awareness of non-violence, education, family, and cultural heritage. The young artists develop their own style and modes of expression, and the program helps bridge different segments of the community and create better understanding. From 2000 to 2002, Crealdé completed a total of five murals funded by a grant from the Orlando Sentinel Family Fund with a variety of grass-roots partners in communities across Central Florida. In 2005, a new mural, “Connecting the Past with the Future,” was funded by the City of Winter Park and was created on movable panels in the game room of the Winter Park Community Center.

In February of 2007, we dedicated a new mosaic mural to replace the beloved but faded Celebrating Community Pride in Hannibal Square mural on the east side of the Winter Park Community Center. The spectacular 10’ x 18’ mosaic tile mural was created by a team of students and outreach participants under the direction of Crealdé Studio Artist Lynn Tomlinson. Crealdé’s largest outdoor art project to date was funded by the Golden Rule Foundation, Walt Disney World, and the City of Winter Park.

On March 7, 2009, Crealdé and the Hope CommUnity Center dedicated the Esperanza/Hope Mural. Working with international artist Alberto Gomez on his 25th public mural, an intergenerational group of 50 community members created a 16' x 8' mural depicting prominent experiences, individuals, and ideas that shape west Orange County. Immigration experiences, the community's farmworker history, family, religion, and financial and language barriers have shaped this rich community. The mural was funded by a grant from Walt Disney World's Helping Kids Shine program.
