By Aaron Humes: An artists’ collective in Belmopan is lending a hand to beautify the Police Training Academy on Forest Drive.
The group repainted the Academy logo on the slab at the entrance and a flowering tree mural on the other side as well as a portrait of the first Belizean Commissioner of Police, Arthur Adolphus, elsewhere on the Academy’s grounds. Over the weekend, police training recruits from Squad 95 assisted with the project, as well as volunteers.
Founder of Raquel Art, Raquel Rodriguez, told us community activity drives the group: “We are very active in our community, we go around and find projects that beautify and help in any way we can.”
The current initiative grew out of a mural project commissioned by Capital City Mayor Sharon Palacio and the group is supported by Minister of Education Francis Fonseca.
Rodriguez cited the “heroes” working alongside her including Carolyn Carr, Tom Sharp, Reniece Bennett, and Orlando Nah, saying that this was a way of giving back.
For the new capital, there will be a number of projects to close the year and Rodriguez emphasized the unity and teamwork of the art experience.
