In an event that transcends borders and promotes awareness about diabetes, artists from the United States, Chile, Colombia, and Argentina came together to create an inspiring mural. Both amateurs and professionals gathered for this special event, bringing people of different ages and experience levels, including children who actively participated in the creation of this art with a significant purpose.

This artistic gathering was led by the talented artist Virginia Ayress, who extended a warm invitation to the community. The mural, painted on September 12th in New York, comprises six panels adorned with vibrant and colorful flowers, typical of the local community garden. These flowers not only represent the beauty of nature but also symbolize hope and resilience in the fight against diabetes.

Diabetes is a disease that affects millions of

people worldwide, and events like this mural not only serve to raise awareness about this condition but also foster a sense of community and support among those affected by the disease and their loved ones. Esperanza Tielbaard was invited to participate, sharing her expertise and contributing her technique to create artistic expressions.
