Community Mural ‘We All Belong’

August-September | Casa Azafrán

In honor of Conexión Américas’ 20th anniversary we commissioned a community art mural from the local artist, Ruben Torres, to be 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. Work has now begun on the mural and we need your help!

As a valued friend of Conexión Américas we invite you to join artist Ruben Torres, in outlining the mural on the wall the week of July 25th. Sign up to volunteer here

The ‘We All Belong’ mural is made possible thanks to the support of our 20th anniversary sponsors, HCA Healthcare/TriStar Health, Ingram Charities, Nashville Soccer Club, Metropolitan Nashville Airport Authority, Pinnacle Financial Partners, and Culture Shift Team!
