Rafael Esquer: A Fruitful Life Mural
Alfalfa Studio recently had the opportunity to work on a really interesting pro-bono project:
Alfalfa Studio was approached by See ChangeNYC, a mayoral and DDC initiative to conceptualize, design and produce a large-scale mural to improve the cafeteria of Catherine St. Respite Center in Lower Manhattan
One of the main objectives of the mural was to bring a happy respite, a bit of brightness to an otherwise depressing environment and to create a learning tool. This was particularly important because the resident families of the shelter are in a very tough situation, living in beyond-sad conditions for too long a period of time.
