In 2020, the Rochester Museum of Fine Arts commissioned Bianca Mireles to paint a large mural in the Recreation Department at the Rochester Community Center.
Mireles is an artist living and working in the seacoast area. Originally from Big Spring, Texas, Mireles has exhibited in a variety of venues in Los Angeles CA, Birmingham AL, Odessa TX, and Big Spring, TX. She studied English and Studio Art at the University of Texas of the Permian Basin in Odessa.
“I’m honored to work with Matt Wyatt and Amy Regan with the RMFA. They dedicate so much time to facilitating a connection between art and the community,” said Mireles. “I’ve lived in three states in the past few years and always gravitate towards the grassroots doers and shakers, and Matt and Amy are exemplary. I love being part of their artistic initiative. Rochester is so lucky to have these two.”
The project was sponsored by the Department of Economic Development for the City of Rochester and Rochester Main Street.
