Bright style home in Highland Park is now permanently intertwined with its owners, the Zuniga family, and their Nicaraguan history. Recently, family members, artists and neighbors gathered to celebrate the transformation of the home in the 5400 block of Marmion Way to an awesome canvas covered with colorful images of birds, volcanoes and the family’s Nicaraguan roots.
The brightly colored house, visible to passengers on the Gold Line trains, were part of the first phase of the Casas Arte Home Intervention Project, which brought together artists and numerous organizations. Chosen by the family, the exterior design was customized to the architectural integrity of the structure and family history. The native flora, fauna (like the motmot bird in rich oversized splendor), five volcanoes of that region and black palm trees leading to the town of Chichigalpa.
We chose morning colors because as people on the Gold Line traveled to work each morning, we wanted this work to inspire them to think `today is a brand new day’,” said project artist Daniel Ruiz.
