Sandra Cinto created “Landscape of a Lifetime”, a site-specific commissioned mural in the Museum’s first-level concourse. The mural is 153 foot tall and it covers the concourse hall’s walls and ceiling with 24 shades of blue, from dark to light, giving the impression of the transition from night to day. The exhibition takes place at the Dallas Museum of Art from November 15th, 2019, until July 5th, 2020.
The walls developed by the artist were completely decorated with detailed pen drawings of celestial elements, such as stars and clouds. Cinto also recorded sounds of running water, rustling leaves, birds and other natural components, and the resulting audios are played softly to “further enhance the artist’s exploration of life and natural cycles”, as explained on the Museum’s website. Cinto has already been commissioned to create murals for institutions in Santo André, São Bernardo do Campo, São Paulo, Seattle and Washington D.C.
On the opening day, November 15th, Friday, at 8 pm, there will be the “Late Night Artists Talk” with Sandra Cinto. The artist will talk with the Dallas Museum of Art’s curator, Dr. Anna Katherine Brodbeck, about “Landscape of a Lifetime”, and, after the conversation, the public can stick around to speak with Cinto about her work.
