We Are All Connected
is a collaborative work made by volunteers taking part in an art and poetry workshop. Participants investigated and explored how trees communicate and form interdependent communities. From this knowledge, they wrote poetry with multimedia artist and poet Veronica Corpuz. Visual Artist Alison Zapata and assistant Ryan McCormick used these poems and ideas from participants to design this mural, which participants painted over the course of several days.
