Project: Yucatan Collage Murals
Manrique Mural Art and Design was approached by FunFuzion of New Rochelle, NY to design a Yucatan-theme art installation for the windows of its new Yucatan Mini Golf center. FunFuzion operates the indoor amusement park at the New Roc complex in New Rochelle. MMAD decided to produce a series of three large "collage-style" canvases, each measuring 6' x 4', to hang inside the bank of interior windows of the center.
The three collages are made up of cultural artifacts, animals and landscapes of the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico. Featured in the paintings are monkeys and tropical birds, a flamingo, a sea turtle, a dolphin and other animals. Also included are examples of the Mayan ruins and artifacts for which the region is famous.
