Museum Without Walls
MUZEO is closed to the public, but you can still experience local art through these outdoor installations.
El Jale: Photographs by Alkaid Ramirez
El Jale is a collection of photographs by Anaheim artist Alkaid Ramirez. The exhibition, organized by MUZEO, is on view in Carnegie Plaza from April 8-28.
The photographs depict the Anaheim swap meet in summer of 2020, during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many Latinx workers, especially immigrants, lost their jobs, so the swap meet became an essential source of income and support for the local Latinx community. Ramirez' collection depicts the "resolve and resilience" of swap meet vendors and culture.
The original photographs were shot on a Polaroid Instax camera using monochrome film. They have been digitized and printed as vinyl floor decals to bring art to the public while MUZEO is closed and amplify important conversations happening in our community.
AESD YamahaCares Upcycled Guitars
In December of 2020, YamahaCares, an employee-based charitable program of Yamaha Corporation of America, donated several instruments to the Anaheim Elementary School District for the purpose of being upcycled into art by families, staff members, and local artists. Each unique art piece will be auctioned off with proceeds going to the Anaheim Elementary School District music program.
MUZEO is closed to the public, but you can still experience local art through these digital presentations.
The exhibition, installed in February for digital presentation only, features 30 works of acrylic on canvas. Paintings are in the realist tradition and are inspired by important places and objects and the people who made them. Irfan Murtaza is an Anaheim-based artist.

"I Matter Because ..." - Work by AESD Students from the Reflections Contest
The National PTA's Reflections program has been inspiring student artists for over 50 years. Each year, over 300,000 students in Pre-K through Grade 12 create original works of art in response to a student-selected theme. The theme for the 2020-2021 program year was I Matter Because.... Students were encouraged to reflect on the theme by exploring their own thoughts, feelings and ideas. Each entry is accompanied by an artist statement, in which the student explains his/her feelings or thoughts about the art. Students were invited to submit art in the following categories: Visual Arts, Literature, Film Production, Dance Choreography, Music Composition, and Photography. Muzeo is proud to feature art works from students in grades Kindergarten to 6 in the categories of Visual Arts, Literature, and Photography.
