We have been asked to inform you of this new project from our teammate, Duda Penteado. Duda is one of the most respected public/mural arts leaders in New Jersey. He and his production colleagues are finally ready to launch their documentary, “How Many Lives?” about their mural project expression concerning gun violence in America. They have created a kickstarter campaign to raise funds to finish this project.
Duda says that this is one of the most important projects that he has had the privilege of working on throughout his significant creative career. Over the next 18 days, he asks that you consider contributing to this effort, share news of this project and help spread the word so that he and his co-producers can meet their goal.
After settling in Jersey City from Brazil, Duda Penteado’s story is a very personal one. As a fine artist living in Jersey City during the 9/11 attacks and America in it’s aftermath, Duda made a large body of celebrated works of art reflecting these events. From museum installations to memorials made of actual steel from the Twin Towers, his art looks at this difficult piece of history through the eye of someone who experienced it from a very close distance. Learn about his process and why Jersey City is his home.
