Viajes del Horizonte Artwork Celebration with Maria Amalia
Join The Bubbler to celebrate Pinney Library’s newest permanent art piece Viajes del Horizonte by artist Maria Amalia! This festive event will feature hands-on art projects, face painting, and popsicles!. Maria Amalia will be present to talk about the how the piece was created with community members from 2021–22.
Viajes del Horizonte (Horizon Journeys) was created during Maria Amalia’s art residency at Pinney Library. Maria Amalia invited the Madison community to make handmade paper inspired by life journeys, sunsets, and the migration of monarch butterflies. Latina immigrants were invited to embroider the handmade paper while they shared their life stories. Itzayana Miranda-Pesina and Noa Delgado-Lopez, the Pinney art studio assistants, led papermaking workshops with Maria Amalia and also participated in the embroidery process.
This project was made possible by generous funding from the Friends of the Pinney Library and continued support from the Madison Public Library Foundation.
