    This year’s mural was inspired by the exhibition Three Generations: Pablita Velarde, Helen Hardin and Margarete Bagshawcurrently on view at The Rockwell, that recognizes the multi-generational artwork of one family of the Santa Clara Pueblo. The design connects to the Museum’s 2020 annual theme, Advancing Women, by highlighting women artists and empowering women’s roles and contributions to society. It also emphasizes our connection to plants, water, air and the environment and the vital role we play in protecting and preserving mother earth.

    About the Alley Art Project

    The Alley Art Project, established in 2008, is a partnership between The Rockwell Museum and the High School Learning Center of the Corning-Painted Post Area School District. Each year, students create murals with professional artists and museum educators using The Rockwell’s own fine art collection as inspiration. The program supports students through the vigorous process of designing and producing public art – while cultivating a sense of pride, ownership and connection to the community.

    The Alley Art Project is made possible in part by grants from The Triangle Fund and The Great Circle Foundation Inc.
