Petersburg’s Mural Inauguration & Dedication
Muralist: Salvador (Salvador Gonzales Escalona)

Join Legacy Media Institute and the City of Petersburg for the unveiling and dedication of a spectacular mural that world renowned Cuban muralist, Salvador, is painting as a gift to the City of Petersburg for permanent installation. He will have an exhibition of his works at PAAL Gallery throughout the Festival.

Salvador is a painter, muralist, and sculptor from Callejon de Hamel in Havana, Cuba very near the University of Havana, which is over 200 years old. Located in a very small, relatively long space, a sort of cul de sac, Salvador González Escalona has a gallery from where he directs an ambitious project he, as poet of images, started: huge mural paintings on the front and side walls of the buildings.”Its walls express in one form or another the feeling of African art, that is the presence of African culture in our country. You will find here pieces of sculpture, overhanging roofs with many colors, poetry, images. A house that could be a temple, or that is a temple for this community. It is Black poetry that is in each house, which is at the same time a temple.”
