Puerto Rican Statue of Liberty – A Studio 22 Mural Activation

The design collective Studio 22 (Nasheli Juliana Ortiz, Marién Vélez and Lorna Mulero) were commissioned as part of the ongoing project Power Map: Historic Mural Activations to create a new temporary artwork responding to the mural Puerto Rican Statue of Liberty by Dietrich Adonis, Carlos Vasquez, Glenn Hill, and Jane Golden (painted in 1984) at 1701 Mount Vernon Street.

The new Studio 22 artwork looks at the role of women’s activism in Puerto Rico and is the second in a special series of five events, performances, and workshops activating murals created in Mural Arts Philadelphia’s first 20 years. 

The project, Power Map: Historical Mural Activations, is led by Mural Arts curator-in-residence Daniel Tucker and being developed with the department of community murals. Look for future events in the spring with artists Marie Alarcon, Ken McFarlane and more.
