About the event
Join us for the dedication ceremony and blessing of "Las Esperanzas y Justicias de la Ave Negra," MACRI's first commissioned public art piece, which commemorates the life and legacy of Jovita Idar.
Created by San Anto Cultural Arts with lead artist Rosalinda Alvarez Turuda and assistant Adrian Alvarez and located at Dress for Success San Antonio, just steps from where Jovita Idar lived and worked, the mural was launched during our 3-day Jovita Idar Quarter Launch Celebration in September 2023.
The festivities will begin at 10 am, with the ceremony at 10:30 am.
Special thanks to the San Antonio Area Foundation for providing MACRI with critical funding for the mural!
