Pachamama murals

In summer 2020, concrete barriers were placed to block off parking spaces in front of select local restaurants, to create temporary expanded outdoor eating areas. The City of Fort Collins and the Downtown Creative District commissioned artists to enhance the spaces by adding murals to the concrete barriers.

My mural assignment was for the Blind Pig Pub, which supplied the following words of inspiration for my design: Community, Culture, Love and Pachamama (earth/time mother goddess of the indigenous Andes peoples).
