About

Join us on Saturday March 12 (the last weekend of the exhibition IMAGINE BRAZIL!) to mark the end of the art workshop Red Roots/Green Lands, which was developed by artist Maria Ezcurra in collaboration with DHC/ART Education.

This event will take place in the Education Room (465 St-Jean) from 2 to 5 PM. Maria Ezcurra will be present to facilitate the activity. Participants will have the opportunity to collaborate with the artist in the completion of the collective mural and to then choose a fragment of it to take with them. This gesture will allow the mural to plant its roots in multiple places, beyond DHC/ART.

Hosted by DHC/ART Education and Maria Ezcurra
