New Art Center in Newton 61 Washington Park Newtonville, MA 02460 United States

Rufina Santana is a Spanish painter with a degree in Fine Arts and Painting from Barcelona University. She lives in Lanzarote (Canary Islands), where she produces most of her work. For more than three decades she has been showing her artwork around the world: USA, Poland, Ukraine, Japan, United Kingdom, Switzerland, and Germany; becoming one of the most international and recognized contemporary artists from Spain. She is an experienced pedagogue and a regular guest-speaker at lectures.

The event consists of two parts:

1.The concept of the Hero’s Journey: Talk by the artist, in which she will establish the context to embark you on a personal journey full of joy, inspiration, and constructive criticism.

2. The experience: Creation of a mural by the audience –under the artist’s guidance- while being immersed in a musical atmosphere created by members of Unitas Ensemble.  Anyone from any age and background is welcome to participate.

This interdisciplinary art project will capture the interest of a broad audience because of its multifaceted nature, artistic quality and participative approach. The observer evolves to become an active and integral element of the experience, while engaging with others towards achieving a common goal.  The event is free and open to the public.

Rufina Santana will also give a lecture at Boston University on The Hero’s Journey concept through her eyes as an artist — BU College of Fine Arts; 855 Commonwealth Avenue, room 500. May 6th, 12:00 – 1:00 PM.
