Mural donated to Palo Alto College

Palo Alto College unveiled a permanent art installation on behalf of the Alamo Colleges on July 11 in the newly renovated Ozuna Library and Academic Center. The painted mural represents the bond between San Antonio and its sister cities in Mexico – Guadalajara and Monterrey.

 The mural was created by artist Roberto Rivera Novoa and his brother Ernesto to depict the bond between San Antonio and Mexico. It was donated through sponsorship by the Benjamin Franklin Language Center and a special reception was sponsored by IBC Bank.

 The 13’ wide x 7’ high painting depicts two children embraced in brotherhood, with a dove to symbolize peace. Landmarks from San Antonio and Palo Alto College are included, as well as the Hospicio Cabanas from Guadalajara, Jalisco, and Cerro de Silla in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon.

 The gift is part of the “Murals of Brotherhood” cultural and educational exchange program through the Centro Educativo Benjamin Franklin de Celaya, Guanajuato, A.C. (Benjamin Franklin Language Center) in Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico. The program, which is recognized by the United States/Mexico Sister Cities Association, aims to strengthen sister city relationships by highlighting the role and effectiveness visual arts play in affecting social change. Previous murals through the exchange program have been donated to the cities of Laredo, Texas; El Monte, California; and San Gabriel, California.

“The Murals of Brotherhood delivers a program of cultural exchange among sister city leaders including public service managers, local business leaders, and the voluntary and community sector, “said Viviana Isaias Gamboa, Public Relations Representative for the Benjamin Franklin Language Center. “The program seeks to prompt new perspectives for participants on themselves, each other, the city and its people and to explore, through creative practice, new ways of connecting and working between sister cities.”

 The mural unveiling coincided with the 57th Annual Sister Cities International Conference on July 12 and 13 in San Antonio. Nearly 100 Mexican delegates were on site for the mural’s reveal. Special guests included Dr. Bruce Leslie, Chancellor of Alamo Colleges; Marcelo Casillas, Vice Chairman of the Alamo Colleges Board of Trustees; Rey Saldana, Councilman for City of San Antonio District 4; Viviana Isaias, Benjamin Franklin Language Center; Honorable Armando Ortiz Rocha, Consul General of Mexico; Honorable Ramiro Garcia, Mayor of Guadalajara; Gerry Schwebel, IBC Bank; and Eddie Aldrete, IBC Bank.
