In celebration of Martin Cervantez’s current solo exhibition at the Center for the Arts, we are hosting a FREE collaborative public art project on Sunday, August 18, 1-4 pm. Much of Martin’s life work incorporates found objects repurposed into new art forms, creating unique pieces with a variety of textures and shapes. Martin’s unrestricted artistic process is the inspiration behind this public art project, and he will guide you as you work as a group to create a multi-media sculpture to be placed in Old Town Manassas. No artistic experience or background required.
About the Artist
Martin Cervantez enlisted in the Army Signal Corps in July 1986 as an illustrator, and it has drastically shaped his life ever since. Martin’s artwork and perspective are a direct result of these trying experiences. As a previous Artist in Residence at the U.S. Army Center of Military History, Martin was responsible for capturing the history of the army through his art, but since his deployment, he has found that he can utilize art as a therapeutic tool for recovery and self-discovery. Resilience and Rebirth is a visual exploration of Martin’s art therapy journey, and how its continued use has contributed to a whole new body of inspiring work: the Rebirth.
