AUGUST- SEPTEMBER 2022 -- Warehouse 21 was commissioned to do mural art on areas of the former 1614 building in the Railyard where certain surfaces were boarded up due to vandalism since 2020.
On behalf of W21, it has been a sad situation seeing our former beloved building trashed, broken into and more. So, we complained, and with a little funding, we restored aspects of the outdoor boarded areas to give this empty building the arts and cultural skin it deserves.
Our ghost friends remain to lurk there and vibes remain to be felt. One reason why we pursued these creative moments of new art on boarded up areas and walls.
Sebastian Velazquez painted the 'Save the People, Save the Children' that is mounted on the front porch facing Paseo de Peralta. It reflects a wise elder embracing a diverse group of young people in the arts and her prayers to protect them and that they always have a place to go to.
John Santos painted the south side wall, entitled 'Rebirth'. The rebirth mural represents the ongoing cycle of our ever-changing existence and creativity. It focuses on the similarities of how the two have been expressed and experienced on this planet by different cultures and civilizations throughout time. The similarities in the rebirth mural highlight the story of the phoenix.
Shakti Kroopkin, painted the side front porch mural facing the train tracks and named it 'Santa Fe Leans In / Listen'. Through the transformation and resiliency we are experiencing in Santa Fe our ancestors from all lineages are here witnessing the change with us. May we Lean In / Listen to the wisdom of the ancestors and to all voices of our community. This painting is in honor of our Santa Fe beloveds who left us too soon by way of gun violence or suicide, may their memory be for blessing.
Cristina Sanchez paints an outdoor box facing the west parking lot featuring the 'Empowerment of Women'.
