Moriviví Unveiling and Open House

Faculty and staff are welcome to attend

Sharon Nicole González Colón, a member of the Moriviví Collective, puts the finishing touches on the mural in Old Main room 314.

The Spanish Program in the Department of Modern Languages, Literatures and Cultures, will host an unveiling of a mural by the Puerto Rican Moriviví Collective on Friday, April 13 from 6 – 7 p.m. in OM 314. Canisius Spanish students painted the mural on the wall in Old Main 314 under the direction of Sharon Nicole González Colón, a member of the Moriviví Collective. The permanent mural is of Santurce, a neighborhood in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Moriviví is a group of young female artists based in Puerto Rico. Its mission is to use art to promote social justice and display the human condition.

The unveiling coincides with an open house where students and faculty will learn about unique opportunities such as study abroad and study tours, dual immersion programs and tertulias (conversations in Spanish)  led by international students from Spain. Also scheduled for the evening is a screening of the exciting new promotional video of the Modern Languages, Litetraures and Cultures program.  Light refreshments will be served.
