Manuela Guillén: Special Guest Artist at 2021 AL DÍA Women of Merit
Local artist Manuela Guillén will be the featured guest artist at the 2021 AL DÍA Women of Merit.
AL DÍA is excited to announce the special featured artist for the 2021 AL DIA Women of Merit event, Manuela Guillén.
Guillén is a freelance painter, muralist and digital illustrator currently living in North Philadelphia.
She was born in Miami, Florida, to Cuban and Salvadorian immigrant parents, and has had a love for art since her childhood.
Throughout her artistic journey, Guillén has collaborated with local, national and global art organizations, which include PangeaSeed, Fung Collaboratives and 48 Blocks.
Her murals can be found throughout both the United States and Mexico, and are often inspired by plants, tropical colors and her cultural upbringing.
Through her art, Guillén aims to bring awareness to art education, sociopolitical and environment issues.
In addition to her personal artistic endeavors, Guillén is also a Spanish Art teacher and her goal is to inspire her students to use their creativity, as well to help bring communities closer together through the platform of art.
The Women of Merit event will aim to recognize, acknowledge and celebrate the U.S. Latina and multicultural women breaking down barriers and emerging in leadership positions — in corporate, education, entrepreneurship, non-profit and public service — across the nation.
Nominations for the 2021 AL DÍA Women of Merit are being accepted until Feb. 28.
The virtual event is set to take place March 31, 2021. For more information, click here.
