The show is a dynamic, site-specific installation by Alvarado-Juárez, a New York-based American artist born in Honduras.
With the help of community volunteers and experts from Cornell Cooperative Extension Marine Program, the two main galleries will be turned into a magical marine environment with pathways through sand, seashells, and other organic materials indigenous to the East End, plus video projections of water and marine life, approximately 30 of Francisco’s large-scale acrylic paintings, and thousands of repurposed painted paper bags. The smell of the sea and sounds of whales enveloping the viewer’s senses will make for a transformative gallery visit.
