A Painted Conversation Mural Launch

The Cayo Mural, A Painted Conversation, had its launch on Friday. The finished mural is amazing in its vividness and how it really does tell a conversation about Cayo, from young to old. 175 different people helped with the painting. Thanks, Natalia, and Galen University!

"The Cayo Mural came out wonderfully! Be sure and stop by to check it out. A huge thanks to everyone that helped out on this amazing community project."

Community Mural brightens up Town
San Ignacio Town has always been a beautiful community, but it seems the sun is shining a little bit brighter in Cayo since the installment of its newest addition “A Painted Conversation.” The gorgeous mural showcases amazing talent and definitely exudes waves of warmth, that just gives everybody that warm fuzzy feeling inside! The project was spearheaded by leading artist Natalia Pilato of Penn State University School of Visual Arts in the USA, and was made possible through a collaboration of students from Galen University, generous sponsors and the residents of all ages from San Ignacio Town. The mural was originally a part of Natalia’s dissertation research for her PhD in art education and was started in November 2014 and completed on November 27th,2015! The mural which is a collage of photos and drawings were traced and painted by over 175 people ranging in age from 7-71 from Belize and around the world! The concept of the mural was the result of a survey done by Galen University students which asked residents of the tranquil town what they considered their biggest assets.






Galen University got some great pictures of the Cayo Mural launch.

On Friday, November 27, 2015, the San Igancio/Santa Elena and Galen Community were graced with fine art in great company as the community mural - A Painted Conversation, was unveiled.

The mural is the result of collaboration over twelve months with Art Educator/Artist Natalia Pilato of Penn State University who conceptualized the entire project called A Painted Conversation.

In the summer of 2015, a Special Topics community-based art course was taught at Galen by Ms. Pilato where students learned design principles and painting techniques as well as how to participate in civic and community relations. Galen students (Pablo Cambranes, Samantha Cruz, Jessie Gentle, Miriany Lalchand, Landee Longsworth, Hiram Ochaeta, Natasha Velasquez, Elissa Waight and Angela Wu) dedicated themselves to this process from conception to completion, maximizing community engagement every step of the way.

From across the country and internationally, over 175 people ranging in ages from 7-71, joined Ms. Pilato and the Galen Students in studio space donated by St. Andrews Anglican church to help paint. This mural is the result of a very intricate paint-by-number project. The design was traced, color coded, and painted indoors on thirty-two 5’ x 5’ panels. The art instructor mixed over 100 colors for the design.

The Mural is installed on over 80 feet of wall space immediately behind the BTL branch office at the corner of West Street and Paslow Lane in San Ignacio Town.
