LA-based artist will create a traditional "Alfombra de Asserin" rug on April 10
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WHAT: Ontario Mills presents an immersive event with Los Angeles artist, Nery Gabriel Lemus, who will be crafting a colorful sawdust rug, live on April 10 at the center’s newest shopping wing, Fashion Alley (near Coach).
The installation’s creative process will include a detailed layout of painted sawdust, piecing together images of vibrant flowers and nature. In many Hispanic cultures, the “Alfombra de Asserin” rug design is a common tradition associated with Semana Santa, the holy week that celebrates the beginning of the Easter holiday.
Lemus’ work has been featured in exhibitions throughout North, Central and South America. His work has been displayed in a variety of Los Angeles museums and galleries including the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the Hammer Museum and the Charlie James Gallery.
In addition to the art piece, Ontario Mills presents its annual Bunny Photo Experience, open to families starting March 24 through April 16, also located in Fashion Alley (near Ecco Shoes). This is the center’s first year introducing the Caring Bunny™ event, which offers a calm environment for families that have children with special needs to participate.
The art installation will be on display from Monday, April 10 to Friday, April 14.
