The Dreams to a Happy Life
Dollar General Building
416 Broadway St
The Que Tus Sueños Te Lleven a la Vida Que te Haga Felix Mural (Let your Dreams Guide you to a Happy Life) will be painted on Dollar General in Estacada, July 18-31, 2022 and will reflect the Latinx population in our community which has flourished as a dynamic presence in Estacada. This mural is an opportunity for the Latinx community in conjunction with trained artists, to have control over their own narrative and set a foundation to eradicate the inequity caused by negative stereotypes.
Lead artist Reeva Wortel is collaborating with Estacada High School, Todos Juntos, Betesda church and Giselle Gutierrez and Celso Sanchez, two local community organizers. Alongside with Giselle and Celso, Reeva’s role is an organizer and teacher, designing pathways for the Latinx community to lead on what the mural represents about their histories and their futures. Five themes are represented in the design- family, faith, food, education and entrepreneurship.
