Funding Period: 1 year and 3 months

In the Westwood neighborhood of Denver, CO, Re:Vision is leading the development of a traditional Mexican plaza that has been funded through municipal bond funds. Artists will lead multiple projects to re/connect Mexican-American residents with their Mayan cultural heritage. Together the art, culture, history, and language celebrated through this project will contribute to improved community wellness.

The Plaza will include an installation that will help community members identify their Mayan name based on their date of birth. The project is being supported by a recent $9 Million municipal bond approved by the City of Denver.
