I’m Raymond Trujillo, a Grand Rapids artist, who has participated in two previous ArtPrize. This year I’m creating an art prize that combines sculpture, folk art and live entertainment. The piece, which will center around a piñata, will be called “Fiesta In G.R.(Grand Rapids).” The piece will introduce our city to Mexican culture by also incorporating Mexican folklore with Mexican craft. I also intend to introduce the Hispanic culture’s love of clowns by periodically presenting a performer Mundin the clown who will entertain the crowd with Twisting balloon art. This will be an interactive piece that combines folk, sculpture and live entertainment. at the sometime I will be celebrating my Mexican independence which is on Sept. 15. I'am painter, a graphic designer, floral designer, and a folk dance instructor. with this piece I want to express my love for my Mexican heritage by incorporating sculpture, dance, music, and appearances by Mundin the clown.
