Mingei International  Museum off-site installation  is on loan  to the
Escondido Arts Partnership Municipal Gallery, The installation is a colorful restaurant scene created by artesana Zenaida Rafael Julián from Ocumicho, Mexico  Created in 2006, this elaborately conceived work depicts a bustling restaurant at lunchtime, with four tables of hungry diners eating tacos, burritos and sopes, while busy waitresses,
a tortilla maker, and other figures enliven the scene.

We are very grateful and honored to have received a grant from the Escondido Charitable Foundation  for  our “Local Color Project.” We are going to have a mural installed on the side of the gallery created by a local artist Daniel Hernandez. The “Local Color”  mural will entice visitors to Grand Avenue with a visual exploration of the essence and culture of  Escondido. As a two part project we have also included a children’s program for “Local Color” flags that will be created and  displayed publicly at the Tuesday Escondido Certified Farmer’s Market where their artistic voices will flutter in the breeze at Heritage Garden and at special events through out the year.
On behalf of the EAP’s  Board of Directors, staff, EAP members, and community
we thank  The Escondido Charitable Foundation,
for  giving us the opportunity to bring this gift of art to Escondido.
