San Diego’s The New Children’s Museum will launch its monthly series Artist Talks: Reimagining the Power of Art + Play on March 3, exploring play, art, healing, community, identity and the Museum’s role in a post-COVID-19 world. The virtual series includes conversations with commissioned artists about their work, their process and installation plans for the Museum. The first five artists to be featured are Katie Ruiz, David Israel Reynoso, Wes Bruce, Risa Puno and Andrea Chung.
Sherman Heights resident Katie Ruiz will be the first artist featured in the Museum’s virtual series. Ruiz’s talk is titled Reimagining Welcome and will be a discussion with Kuta on hope and plans for the new mural she is creating. The talk takes place March 3, 2021 at 6:00 pm PST via Zoom, and a recording will be available afterwards for viewing.
Ruiz’s large-scale mural for the Museum is titled Brian and the Bugs, inspired by her new illustrated children’s book Brian the Wildflower, which depicts the natural life cycle of a wildflower named Brian.
