Additional Broadway Corridor murals slated for May 28 to June 8
Toledo, May 28, 2012: Mario Torero, in collaboration with Bowling Green State University and the City of Toledo, will be launching an additional phase of mural art on Broadway Street. The project is coordinated with the Sofía Quintero Art and Cultural Center, La Galería de las Américas, and the Organization of Latino Artists.
According to Torero in a press release provided by the Quintero Center: “My work is comprised of the coordination and production of Fine Art through Murals and Sculptures within the community of San Diego, Tijuana and Los Angeles as well as globally.
“My body of work consists of socially motivated public artworks that have evolved into a master plan concept that continues to march on to the tune of humanity's dream.”
Community volunteers are welcome to participate in painting the murals under the projects direction. The projects begin on May 28th continuing through June 8, 2012. If interested in volunteering contact Jennifer Moorman at 419-215-8570 or contacting the Quintero Center at 419-241-1655.
