Community Art Initiative in Mata de Plátano, Cedros
In May, The Solidarity Project partnered with the village of Mata de Plátano in Cedros, Honduras to create a beautiful community mural!
The mural represents the community of Mata de Plátano; note a leafy banana tree, representing the community name (Mata de Plátano means Banana Tree) and behind it a mandarin tree, another common fruit grown in the community. Mata de Plátano is among the largest producers of mandarins in Honduras and they even have a festival dedicated to this production, The Mandarin Festival, which is celebrated every December, during peak mandarin season.
Thank you to local Honduran Artist, Marcio Arteaga, assistant artist, Scarlett Rovelaz, and the community of Mata de Plátano for their partnership and hard work in creating an incredible mural for the school and community! We are proud to support community art initiatives in Honduras!
