These intricate and vibrant art pieces expressing the beauty of Chicano culture are a popular Corpus Christi attraction. Now, the Chicano Pop panels are for sale!
Chicano Pop by Mayra Zamora was created for the “Arches Public Art Program” for temporary display in the arches of the Western wall of the Art Center.
Now that the next “Arches Public Art” panels are ready to be installed, these exquisite pieces are up for sale.
As depicted by the image at the top of each arch, the panels are named: “El Taco”, “El Ojo”, “El Pescado”, “La Rosa”, “El Sol” and “La Calavera”.
Sale times are every day, 10 am- 11 am, at the Art Center. The sale of these panels only runs through March 15th, 2019.
These panels are available to purchase at $2,000 per panel (without tax).
For the lucky art lovers that purchase one of these incredible pieces, the panels will be available for pick up anytime after Monday, February 25, 2019.
Wondering why these beautiful panels were removed and are being sold?
Simply because a new local artist will get the opportunity to showcase their work. Its all a part of the Arches Public Art Program put in place by the Art Center of Corpus Christi.
The Mission Behind the Program: “The Arches Public Art Program was created by the Art Center of Corpus Christi to boost an artist’s creative and professional development by challenging the artist to create a large scale work (six or seven 4ft x 8ft panels) and to create new, original work for a solo art exhibition to be held after the panels are completed. The goal is for the artists to develop a thoughtful body of work.”
The ribbon cutting and reveal of the new panels was held Friday, March 1, 2019, on Artwalk night.
So, although its time to say goodbye to these gorgeous artistic creations by Mayra Zamora, Corpus Christi can look forward to the new art panels: “Endless Endeavor” by Ben Munoz.
