CREATED FOR THE MUSEUM OF NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ART (monca)
THE GODDESS OF PEACE, IRENE
This mural was created for the exhibition BEYOND THE FRAME, curated by the Museum of Northern California Art (monca). The piece was exhibited in the MONCA building, formerly The Veterans Hall.
"I felt that incorporating the goddess of peace was an appropriate symbol for the Veterans Hall and I wanted the art to interact with the buildings architecture."
The mural design draws inspiration from the buildings architectural design, created in the 1920's by the architectural firm Cole & Brouchaud whose design elements were influenced by classic elements and early Christian-Byzantine Revival styles. The Veterans Hall has remained an integral part of the Chico community since its dedication on Veterans Day 1927.
