Dedication of Kiawitl Mural at Rio Grande Indoor Pool

09/27/2016

On September 24, 2016,  Commissioner Art De La Cruz, Bernalillo County Public Art, artist PAZ and apprentice artists from Working Classroom   dedicated the Kiawitl Mural at  Bernalillo County's Rio Grande Pool at 2312 Arenal SW. 

This project was funded by Bernalillo County 1% For The Arts. The project coordinator is Jorge De La Torre.

Mural apprentices are Karizzma Garcia-Rael, Alonso Estrada, Lora Werito, Ana Palma, Hailey Carpenter and Nautica Tapia.

Kiawitl is the essence of rain.

As a force of nature, Kiawitl is fierce yet nurturing.

She may destroy through flooding but creates new life by giving water to the earth.

She is the female counterpart to Tlalok, the main figure on the interior mural

who is the essence of water, liquor of the earth.
