Climate Hero: Silvia López Chavez
"Rise Again" is a parody of the mural "Rise" created by Silvia López Chavez as part of the "Sea Walls Boston Artists for Oceans 2020" project. The Sea Walls program, initiated by the PangeaSeed Foundation, aims to use public art to convey messages about the ocean to communities worldwide. Inspired by Silvia's mural artwork and reflecting on the positive change brought about by the ocean's abundant vitality, "Rise Again" serves as a tribute to Silvia's creativity and proactive attitude. The painting depicts Silvia herself emerging from the mural, symbolizing the life force of the ocean transcending into the real world. It also includes the individuals involved in creating the mural, highlighting the collaborative effort behind its creation. "Rise Again" pays homage to Silvia López Chavez's mural "Rise" and celebrates her creative vision and proactive approach. It represents the transformative power of the ocean and the collective effort of the artists involved in the project.
