There’s a new head turner in downtown Guadalupe – well eight heads to be exact
“It was a really fantastic exercise of the community coming together [acknowledging] the sum is greater than its part,” said Executive Director of The Dunes Center, Doug Jenze.
In an art installation put on by The Dunes Center and The Squire Project, this mural made out of enlarged photographs hopes to illuminate the diversity in the Guadalupe.
“Over the years we’ve had the Swiss-Italian influence, the Filipino influence, the Portugese influence, and of course the Mexican Americans. So to see a cross section represented on this wall, I think is a great tribute to people who have made Guadalupe their home over the years,” explains Michelle Minetti-Smith who is featured in the mural.
These photos may be on the walls of the old Far Western Tavern now, but this building is eventually going to become the new location for The Dunes Center.
