August-September. We All Belong! mural at Casa Azafrán.

In honor of Conexión Américas’ 20th anniversary we commissioned a community art mural from the local artist, Ruben Torres, that has been painted on the outer wall of Casa Azafrán, facing Casa Azafrán park. While commissioned by Conexión Américas, it is important for us that this mural represents the work of all of our partners and the diverse communities that Casa Azafrán welcomes.  We invite you to stop by Casa Azafrán to witness the We All Belong mural, take a picture and share it on social media using the hashtag #WeAllBelong.

Thanks to the support of our 20th anniversary sponsors, HCA Healthcare/TriStar Health, Ingram Charities, Nashville Soccer Club, Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority, Pinnacle, and Culture Shift Team!
