The Redwood City Improvement Association in partnership with Fung Collaboratives, has unveiled the latest Art Kiosk Installation exhibit by local artist, Fernando Escartiz, titled “The Dream.” Join us for the opening reception on Saturday, September 7 at 4 p.m. in the Downtown Redwood City’s Courthouse Square Kiosk to welcome the project to the community. “The Dream” is inspired by Escartiz’s childhood fascination of the Mexican folk-art tradition – Alebrijes, paper mâché sculptures representing imagination and fantasy. The exhibit is made of traditional paper mâché and wooden carved animals colorfully decorated to pull viewers in while experiencing Mexican culture. The exhibition fills the interior of the art kiosk with suspended and free-standing sculptures and floor paintings, making this the first exhibit to go beyond the structure of the art kiosk. Massive alebrijes will sit atop the roof and cascade down the sides making it a site to see.

In partnership with Fung Collaboratives, the rotating Art Kiosk Installations will continue throughout 2019 with different featured artists in an effort to enhance the community’s fine art scene for residents and visitors. “The Dream” will be on display until October 6, 2019.
