About The Mural Project:
Katharsis Media has been commissioned to bring together a diverse group of artists who will work together to create a “Puzzle Piece Mural” symbolic of the idea that each piece is unique and different but works together to give meaning and life to the whole. All pieces are of equal value and significance. 44 artists worked together to craft through words, poems, and a variety of visual art mediums, a mural using the motto “release the kreative”.
The mural is comprised of 48 unique puzzle pieces created by 44 different artists. Artists were selected to ensure that the mural represents a diverse population representative of the rich and diverse heritage of Albuquerque. 13 of the artists are student artists and represent each of the city’s high school districts.
Artists worked together to envision the final product and determine how the overall mural would represent the diversity of our city while still allowing each individual puzzle piece to be unique and tell its own story. The mural will be unveiled at the ABQ Artwalk on July 9, 2021 at the Kress Building from 5-9 pm and then on display there until the conclusion of the online auction on August 8. The Kress Building is located at 416 Central Avenue SW. Individual pieces will be sold at a silent auction to raise funds for scholarships to visual and performing arts classes and performances in community theatre and art centers across the city.
