“The World Wall” is a 240’ traveling mural installation designed by Judith F. Baca. Sponsored by the Social and Public Arts Resource Center, the World Wall began its world tour premiering in Finland and the Soviet Union in 1990.
One of the primary goals of the exhibition is to reach the widest possible audience and create an arena for dialogue. An innovative traveling installation system of poles, guy-wires and canvas frees the murals from the restrictions of conventional art exhibitions. Seven panels 10 foot by 30 foot each assemble into a 100-foot diameter circle, traveling to public spaces nationally and then internationally.
Excerpt from artists’ statement: “Gestating within us, the promise of a future reborn. Captured in the net of our intertwined arts, captured in the net, the creative force of the un-woven. Our heart has a will of its own, the same hummingbird empowering our ancestors’ vision. We rebuild the forgotten roads and find a common origin. We destroy the fields of death in a ceremonial offering to our mothers and fathers. My true duality, the First Mother, forever present in the laughter that cures and tests us– We swear that we shall never again be subjected by the decrees of the heartless!
